James Mulholland's handwritten manuscript

So as I understand it (and correct me where I'm wrong)... working backwards:

The canonized version of the 'First Vision' is published in the PogP, JSH

and was originally published in Times & Seasons in 1842

and this publication was from a handwritten manuscript, from 1838, by Smith's scribe, James Mulholland.

As I understand it there were some minor changes made between these. I found the T&S online (scanned PDF). I've been looking but I can't find it, does anyone know online where I can find the Mulholland manuscript online? Scanned PDF, or an HTML recreation (like Uncle Dale's) or full citation (i.e. wikisource)?

Thanks

The beginning of it is going to be included in one of the next volumes published in the Joseph Smith Papers, which will also include Joseph's 1832 history. Although I understand that the Published Revelations volume will be the one out next.

In print format, it's in vol. 1 of Dean Jessee's Papers of Joseph Smith. Online, you can have access to it through the Selected Collections of the LDS Archives--but you'd need a BYU library ID and password (or any library that has a copy of it, anyways). Those are the most authoritative, and the only places I know that have a complete transcription of the Mulholland document..

However, in the meantime, you may find this site helpful, where Scott Kenney does a great job doing a side-by-side comparison of the Manuscript History version (one step after the Mulholland text) and the JSH.

Hope that helps.
