Joseph Jr. returns to the Manchester hill (without Alvin) and fails to get the plates . According to some sources, Joseph was instructed to bring Samuel Lawrence with him on his next annual visit , but other sources say that he was instructed to bring his future wife, whom he had not yet met . It is likely that no future visits were planned at this time and that Samuel Lawrence and Emma Hale are retrospective insertions into the story.
