From 1921 to 1922 B. H. Roberts wrote three papers that listed parallels between the Book of Mormon and the second edition (1825) of Ethan Smith's View of the Hebrews. Roberts constructed the possible argument that the Book of Mormon relied upon Ethan Smith's book. John Welch responds to that claim by addressing the issues Roberts raised and by listing over eighty differences between the two works.
