Ben at Juvenile Instructor has posted "A Sample of pure language" from Joseph Smith.  There is some interesting commentary in part two of the post.  The text is as transcribed in Joseph Smith Papers, Revelations and Translations Volume 1: Facsimile Revelation Books, page 265 (with some of the transcription simplified):
