29. The explanations for character 44 ("Beth Ku-Ain tri-ette") are: EA WWP: " The whole earth, pure, with all glory _____," EA JS: " the whole Earth or the largest place the greatest enjoyment on Earth garden of the Earth," and EA OC: " The whole earth, or the largest place, the greatest enjoyment on earth - man's residence in the garden of the earth."
30. The explanations for character 45 ("E beth-ku-ain tri-ette") are: EA WWP: " All the heavenly bodies - Eternity," EA JS: "Eternity," and EA OC: " The heavenly bodies, the worlds of light and glory, the heaven, heavens, and heaven of heavens - eternity." Again, definitely not a simultaneous dictations.
31. The diverse explanations for character 46 ("E beth Ka") are: EA WWP: " The heaven of heavens, <wher God resides> the greatest place of happiness," EA JS: " the greatest place of hapiness where God resides the Celestial kingdom," and EA OC: " The greatests place of happiness, where God resides - The celestial kingdom."
So, of the 39 characters given explanations in the EA's, 16 of them (including ones addressed earlier in the thread), scattered throughout the EA's, from beginning to end, contain moderate to clear evidence that the EA's weren't simultaneously dictated, and that EA JS and EA OC were dependent upon EA WWP.
Could EA WWP have been dictated and the other EA's copied from EA WWP? I suppose that is possible. However, given what was mentioned earlier (arguments 4a and 4b1-2), it seems unlikely. Rather, it appears that Phelps may have spearheaded the venture, which venture may have consisted of some academic sharing back and forth between the several participants.
We know that the GAEL wasn't simultaneously dictated since there was only one copy, and this in the handwriting of Phelps, and some later on in the handwriting of Warren Parrish. Was it dictated, nevertheless? Again, it is uncertain, but from preliminary indications gathered during my research, it doesn't seem likely.
How about the Abraham manuscripts? Were they simultaneously dictated? Clearly, of the manuscripts produced in late 1835 or early 1836, there is only one containing Abr. 1:1-3, and this only in the handwriting of Phelps. So, at least that portion of the Abr. Mss. wasn't simultaneously dictated.
And, since two out of the three 1835 Mss., with content from Abr. 1:4 - Abr. 2:2, are in the handwriting of Warren Parrish, at least one of them evidently wasn't part of a simultaneous dictation (it seems impractical for one person to take simultaneous dictation on two different manuscripts).
This leaves open the question whether the Fredrick Williams manuscript and one of the Warren Parrish manuscripts were simultaneously dictated, and if so, were they dictated or copied from an earlier Parrish manuscript, or copied from another non-extant manuscript. And, since Dan McClellan is far more educated and experienced at textual critical analysis than I, and since he is already exploring this territory, I will leave answering this question to him.
