Abstract

This article contains two letters of Martin Harris written to a Mr. Emerson, with an editorial introduction. Harris testifies that an angel showed him the plates containing the Book of Mormon and that the translation copied from them was approved by Professor Anthon. Harris states that Joseph Smith could not have translated the plates by himself. He denies that he preached against the Book of Mormon in England.
