Richards presents a reprint of an article from the Boston U.S. Weekly Journal that tells of an ancient Aztec city whose inhabitants are believed to be part of the lost ten tribes. Their record is found in a book of parchment bound by brazen clasps and containing curious hieroglyphics. Richards predicts that evidence in support of the Book of Mormon will overwhelm the skepticism regarding its origins.
