Abstract

Also in A Sure Foundation: Answers to Difficult Gospel Questions, 50-52. Salt Lake City: Deseret Book, 1988. Citing Joseph Smith’s own description of the physical appearance of the plates as well as several contemporary accounts of persons who were permitted to lift them, the author provides an approximate weight of the gold plates.
