B. H. Roberts called and read a letter to the Presidency from a gentleman who had given the Book of Mormon a close reading. He called Brother Roberts' attention to the fact that the passages quoted in the Book of Mormon from Isaiah are identically the same as the Bible text; and as no two persons could possibly translate in precisely the same language, this man asked for an explanation in regard to this matter. Brother Roberts had prepared an answer to the same, and now read it to the Presidency, who approved of Brother Roberts' views regarding this matter as perhaps the best reasons that could be given in the absence of a knowledge of the facts.
