The material doesn't appear in the Joseph Smith papers. It's not in my usual sources (Dan Vogel, Dale Broadhurst (http://olivercowdery.com/, centerplace.org, the M2C citation cartel, etc).
This all started as a chapter in my next book. I was writing about the Early Modern English fad, along with the translation generally. Now there is so much material that I can only summarize it in the book, but I'll probably write a separate more detailed book for people who like references.
I'm going to present it for the first time publicly at the Book of Mormon Evidence Conference in Sandy, Utah, on Sept. 28-9.
I hope to see you at the conference.

I hope everyone is familiar with the Critical Text project. It is phenomenal. I refer to it all the time. My only problem with it is the Early Modern English theory, as we've been discussing.
Here's the main web page: http://criticaltext.byustudies.byu.edu/
I've gone through most of these books in detail, including Parts 1 and 2 of Volume 3. Part 3 of Volume 3 is the book they are going to be discussing on September 25.
Maybe they'll address the points I've discussed in this series on the M2C web and EME-OT. Maybe they'll address the new material I'm working on right now.
I hope they do, but I doubt they will.
My other talk at the conference is on Saints, the new Church history book. It's going to be epic.
