Title Gentile Account, page 075
Description 70 miles from there and stood for hours watching it. There were lances darting and the sound of cannon and armies just at hand, and flashes of light, though there were no clouds. Joseph's discovery was in the papers directly, and everywhere people remarked the coincidence, because for hundreds of miles they had been out watching like myself." I asked where the plates were now, and saw in a moment from the expression of the countenances around that I had blundered. But I was answered that they were in a cave; that Oliver Cowdery 80 though now an apostate would not deny that he had seen them. He had been to the cave, I did not under- stand exactly whether Oliver Cowdery was there three times, or whether he accompanied Joseph the third time he went there, and Brigham Young's tone was so solemn that I listened bewildered like a child to the evening witch stories of its nurse. Nor do I understand whether the plates were all transcribed by this time or not. The plates are the thin leaves of gold shaped like thin sections of a cow-bell, to speak profanely, and threaded on golden rings which the Mormons believe Joseph to have found in the hill Cumorah. The curious characters inscribed upon them he was enabled to translate by means of a magic, or hallowed, pair of immense eye-glasses, to speak profanely X"Oliver CoLvdery, a young school teacher who acted as scribe to Joseph Smith in translating the Book of Mormon, was born October 3, 1806. In 18ZI he began assisting Joseph Smith and was baptized into the Mormon church. He is listed as one of the "Three Witnesses" in the Book of hlormon. lilthough Cowdery \vas excommunicated in 1838, he never denounced the Book of Mormon. In 1848 he wras rebaptized into the church and determined to move to Utah. While visiting relatives in 1Missouri on his journey to Utah, Cowdery died March 3, 1850. He had been dead over t\vcnty years when Elizabeth Kane lvrote her journal. 75
