Really, I don't hold any kind of hate against your opinions, since you managed to make them respectable. Now, what really leaves me a bit intrigued is that you, sometimes, seem to have 'something' against Rush that you can't describe here. I don't know, but it might be some kind of bias, or maybe it's just me. Whatever, I still like these guys' stuff, even though I don't have their entire material and don't intend much to have.
Your letter of December 28th,was duly received, but by reason of busy cares I have not been able to reply.
The pamphlet sent by you came two or three days after the letter reached me. One sentence of your letter you would probably resent as an impertinence, or attribute to fanatical cant if I were to repeat it, with a request for you to make it of personal application to yourself.
You will pardon me when I state that no man living has a greater interest in the question whether the Book of Mormon is a fabrication from Rev. Spaulding's romance, or a discovery of deposited records of early inhabitants of this country as it purports to be, and came into being as my father, Sidney Rigdon, Martin Harris, Peter and David Whitmer, Oliver Cowdery and others, claim.
If the religious teachings and principles that the book contains are true, and comport with the New Testament Scriptures, I am interested in maintaining them and the book because of them. If those principles are false, I am interested in abandoning them and inducing others to do so too.
If I become satisfied that the statement respecting the manner in which Joseph Smith became possessed of the records is true, I am interested in maintaining it; and if I become convinced that he was a bad man, and foisted a falsehood upon the world, deliberately, persistently and wickedly, I am interested in denouncing such act.
Howe's book to the last confession of John D. Lee, and Ann Eliza's exposure. I have given them all a close, and so far as I could, an analytical consideration; and will do the same with your pamphlet.
The results I will write to you, and you will no doubt read what I send carefully and thoughtfully, whether you do prayerfully or not. Like all who have essayed to write upon the subject you have taken Howe's work as the basis, and have considered what is stated there as proved.
If, therefore, discredit is thrown upon that work, the premise upon which your argument rests is destroyed.
So far as Joseph Smith's possible access to the manuscript of Solomon Spaulding is concerned, whatever previous writers may have done, the theory is abandoned by you. This leaves the question confined to Sidney Rigdon and his possible connection with those manuscripts.
The possession of the manuscript is accounted for in the statement of Mesdames Davison and McKinstry, daughter and wife of Rev.
Spaulding, from its inception until its committal to Dr. Hurlbut inexcept the possible time it may have been in the care of Silas Engle, as stated by your father, "some weeks," and returned as he supposed, and Mrs.
McKinstry states, and as it must have been, because Mrs. McKinstry states that she had access to it at her Uncle Sabine's after Mr.
Spaulding's death, after the removal of the family from Amity, Pennsylvania, and before their arrival in Monson, Massachusetts.The Institute for Defence and Security Studies NSW aims to promote informed debate on, and to improve public awareness and understanding of, defence and national security.
