Title Gentile Account, page 076
Description again of what the Mormons reverence, called the Urim & Thummim found in the same small chest in which the plates were. This translation is the Book of Mormon. Brigham Young said that when Oliver Cowdery and Joseph Smith were in the cave this third time, they could see its con- tents more distinctly than before, just as your eyes get used to the light of a dim candle, and objects in the room become plain to you. It was about fifteen feet high and round its sides were ranged boxes of treasure. In the centre was a large stone table empty before, but now piled with similar gold plates, some of which also lay scattered on the floor beneath. Formerly the sword of Laban hung on the walls sheathed, but it was now unsheathed and lying across the plates on the table; and One that was with them said it was never to be sheathed until the reign of Righteousness upon the earth." [A note by Elizabeth Kane appears at the bottom of this journal page.182 I would have liked to hear more, half expecting the appari- tion of some Frederick Barbarossa,ss but Brigham Young ceased speaking and Bishop Snow related a long dream which had recently been vouchsafed to him. By this time my poor little boys were so tired after their long ride that they were nodding X'According to the Book of Mormon, Laban lived in Jerusalem about 600 B.C. He was slain with his own sword by Nephi who gained the record of his people to take with him to the New World. A similar account of the unsheathed sword of Laban related here by Elizabeth Kane, was told by Brigham Young at the organization of the Davis Stake of the church, June 17, 1877. Brigham Young, /ournal of Dikourjes (Liverpool, England: William Budge, 1878, reprinted 1966), 38. 8zElizabeth Kane's footnote reads: "I found a long account of the "sword of Laban" in a copy of the Book of Mormon on the table this morning in the 1st Chapter of the Book of Nephi." XsFrederick I was the Holy Roman emperor from 1152-90 A.D. 76
