Abstract

Morton responds to three objections to the Book of Mormon. Mr. Rought Brooks of the Burnley News maintains that the Book of Mormon is weakened because Joseph Smith used a “peek-stone” to search for money, and the Book of Mormon mentions the use of “precious steel,” domesticated horses, cows and oxen, and the compass. Morton counters that the Chinese used magnetic directors in 2634 B.C., ancient iron remains have been dug up in the New World, as have remains of horses. Buffaloes are domesticated cows and oxen gone wild.
