Excerpt from The Latter-Day Saints' Millennial Star, Vol. 97: January 31, 1935
Besides the testimony of the youthful prophet to the existence of this ancient record, there is that of his scribe, Oliver Cowdery, also those of David Whitmer and Martin Harris. The same heavenly messenger who revealed the existence of the record, exhibited the plates to these three men and there were eight others to whom the Prophet Joseph himself showed the plates, and who handled them and examined the engravings thereon, and all these bear witness to what they had seen and handled.
Both Joseph Smith and Oliver Cowdery testify that in May, 1829, while in the woods engaged in prayer, a messenger from heaven came to them and, placing his hands upon their heads, conferred upon them the Aaronic Priesthood, which gave them authority to preach repentance and baptize in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and there began their ministry.
The same men testified that subsequently three other heavenly messengers visited them - viz., the Apostles Peter, James and John, and conferred upon them the holy apostleship, which gave them authority to lay 011 hands for the gift of the Holy Ghost, to organize the Church of Christ, to confer the same power upon others, and thus build up the Church in all the world, and prepare the way for the glorious appearing of the Redeemer to reign with the righteous over the whole earth.
