DID LEHI LAND IN CHILE?
This Paper examines a statement, written by Frederick G. Williams in the early days of the church, which says that Lehi landed "on the continent of South America in Chile thirty degrees south Latitude." The author, Frederick G. Williams, is the great-great-grandson of Frederick G. Williams.
Some traditions have held that the statement was a revelation received by Joseph Smith or Frederick G. Williams. The author takes a careful look at the documentation and finds no evidence, except for tradition, attributing the statement to Joseph Smith, or for it being revelation. The Paper also supplies copies of the original documents, courtesy of the Church Historical Department.
