Abstract

This article reports that Mr. Kinkaid, an employee of the Smithsonian Institute, found an entrance to a very large cave while traveling in the Grand Canyon. He estimates that more than fifty-thousand highly civilized people would have been able to live in this cave system hewn out of rock. The author speculates this could have been a Jaredite colony. Such discoveries will ultimately show that Joseph Smith is a prophet and was inspired of God to bring forth the Book of Mormon.
