B. H. Roberts writes to Apostle Richard R. Lyman about his decision to not present further Book of Mormon problems he has uncovered to the Quorum of the Twelve. He does, however, present Lyman with an eighteen-page document titled "A Parallel" which shows numerous parallels between the Book of Mormon and Ethan Smith's "View of the Hebrews" published in Vermont before the Book of Mormon. Copies of "A Parallel" circulates in the Mormon underground during the late 1920s and through the early 1940s. It is finally published in the "Rocky Mountain Mason" in 1956 and later is circulated widely being available on the internet.
