021: Charles Anthon and the Lost 116 pages

Anthon

This much we know – Martin Harris was sent by Joseph Smith to visit the learned in New York with a Transcript in hand. One of those individuals he met with was professor Charles Anthon. The transcript which allegedly contained “reformed egyptian” straight off the metal plates from the Mormon “Golden Bible” along with a proposed translation. This is where the stories separate. Martin Harris and Joseph SMith claim Martin came back reporting Charles Anthon had confirmed the Characters and the translation. As we will see though, Charles Anthon has a different story to tell. Who’s lying and who is telling the truth? That is the focus of this episode of Mormon Discussion. What say ye?
