After he tore up the certificate he asked me to bring the Plates to him.  
 
  If you will bring the
Plates to me, I will
translate them !
 
     
  I can ‛t. Part of the Plates are sealed, and we
are forbidden to show them to anyone.1
 
  I cannot
read a
sealed
book ! *
 
     
  This is a
lucky break !
 
  Ah-ha ! So ! The venerable
professor beat them at their
game. He saw the fraud !
 
  I ‘m not so sure . . . just
because the professor did not believe in Angels doesn‘t mean that the translations
weren‘t accurate.

* Joseph later learned that Nephi had seen the same event prophesied by Isaiah and
had recorded it in even greater detail ( see 2nd Nephi 27:9-20 ).
