Hayes compares the contents of the Spaulding manuscript with the Book of Mormon. The Spaulding manuscript is a story of a Roman named Fabius who was blown off course traveling from Britain to America in the 4th century A.D. Hayes writes that nothing is similar in the Book of Mormon to what is contained in the Spaulding Manuscript.
