Joseph complied and found the box, opened the cover, removed the plates, but laid them down to put the cover back on the box and the plates disappeared and returned to the box. Smith tried to re-take the plates but he saw something like a toad which soon assumed the appearance of a man and struck him on the side of his head. It struck him again when he tried to take the plates again. The spirit told Smith he could not have them, as he had not obeyed the orders and was instructed to return in one year with his oldest brother (Alvin). (1)
