Dickinson, the great-niece of Solomon Spaulding, reports an interview she conducted with Matilda Spaulding McKinstry, daughter of Solomon Spaulding. Gives basic facts about Spaulding’s Manuscript Found. Spaulding was the first to discover the Ohio mound-builder’s Israelite descent. His manuscript contained the names Mormon, Maroni, Lamenite, and Nephi and was taken to Patterson, a publisher in Pittsburg, with whom Sidney Rigdon spent time. In 1834 a man named Hurlburt asked for the manuscript for the purpose of making a comparison and the manuscript was lost.

Display Abstract  

Four-part series. For 120 years following the death of King Mosiah, the Nephites were under the rule of the Judges. Their rule was not always peaceful nor their government stable. There were internal as well as external enemies. Priestcrafts and corruption were introduced by Nehor, Amlici, Korihor, and others. The decline in Nephite morality led to the existence of the Gadianton robbers. Samuel the Lamanite preached repentance but few received his words.

Reynolds discusses how the Nephites and Lamanites were able to outlast and overcome the armies of the Gadianton Robbers. Although peace reigned for a time, the government eventually collapsed under the actions of traitors and apostates who sought power, and the people reverted to tribal orders for protection. Among these, one Jacob – who styled himself a king and founded the city of Jacobugath – receives prominent mention. With this collapse, as detailed by Reynolds, the reign of the judges ended.

Display Abstract  

Because the prophet Joseph Smith took no credit for the discovery of the ancient plates and the translation thereof, men have criticized this book more than any other. Had he claimed to have found and translated them by his own genius, people would believe the Book of Mormon and proclaim Joseph a clever and learned man. The Book of Mormon is filled with internal evidences of its divinity, and there are also the testimonies of the witnesses.
