Then what
happened ?
 
  After midnight on the 22nd of September, 1827, the Heavenly Messenger, Moroni, delivered them up to me with this charge :  
     
 

Joseph, you are now responsible for the Plates and
these sacred objects. If you are careless, neglectful, or show them to anyone you are not commanded to, you shall be condemned. Wicked men will scheme and plan every stratagem possible to take them from you, but if you are watchful and faithful in your trust you will have power to retain them until you finish the translation of the unsealed portion,
and then you shall return them to me.*

 
     
 
  I think it ‘s high time we cracked this case. I ‘m going to throw the book at ‘em now !  
     
  That ‘s the
spirit, J.B.
 
     
  Hmm . . . I see here that
Abraham, Peter, Moses, and other Prophets were visited by Angels !
 

 

* JSH 1:59-60
