Abstract

In addition to Oliver Cowdery’s testimony of the Book of Mormon, his testimony of the restoration of the two priesthoods is of great value. As newly-appointed editor of the Church newspaper he wrote an account in installments of the translation of the Book of Mormon. As a part of this series he told of John the Baptist’s visit to restore the Aaronic priesthood.
