And also the testimony of eight witnesses

Be it known unto all Nations kindreds tongues & people unto whom this work shall come that Joseph Smith jun. the author & proprietor of this work has shewn unto us the plates of which hath been spoken which have the appearance of gold & as many of the leave <​leaves​> as the said Smith has translated wit <​we​> did handle with our hands & we also saw the engravings thereon all of which has the appearance of ancient work & of curious workmanship & this we <​we​> bear record with words of soberness that the said Smith has shewn unto us for we have seen & hefted & know of a surety that the said Smith has got the plates of which we have spoken & we give our names unto the world to witness unto the world that which we have seen & we lie not God bearing witness of it
