It occured while I was practicing law in Michigan. One
day a gentleman paid me a visit to ask me a question.
 
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
  Mr. Cowdery, what do
you think of the Book of
Mormon now ? Do you
believe that it is true ?
 
 
  No Sir, I do not !  
   
     
     
     
     
     
     
  Well, I thought as much ; for I concluded that
you had seen the folly of your ways and had resolved to
renounce what you had once declared to be true.
 
     
  Sir, you mistake me ; I do not
believe that the Book of Mormon is true ; I am past the
point of belief on that point,* for I know that it is true, as
well as I know that you now sit before me.
 
   
     
     
     
     
     
     
  Do you still testify
that you saw
an Angel ?
 
 
  Yes, as much as I see
you now ; and I know
the Book of Mormon
to be true.1
 
* See Ether 3:19
