Abstract

This is an article reprinted from the Chicago Times, written after a reporter interviewed David Whitmer. David Whitmer confirms his testimony of the Book of Mormon and says that the Spaulding Theory is false. Sidney Rigdon did not know of the Book of Mormon until after it was published. Whitmer also showed the reporter the printer’s manuscript of the Book of Mormon.
