The True Latter Day Saints’ Herald (1879): "the story of the Urim and Thummim Translation does not date back, for its origin further than 1833"

The True Latter Day Saints’ Herald, 15 November 1879:

The proofs are clear and positive that the story of the Urim and Thummim Translation does not date back, for its origin further than 1833, or between that date and 1835; for it is not found in any printed document of the Church of Christ up to the latter part of the year 1833, or the year 1834. The “Book of Commandments” to the Church of Christ, published in Independence, Mo., in 1833, does not contain any allusion to Urim and Thummim; though the term was inserted in some of the revelations in their reprint in the “Book of Doctrine and Covenants” in 1835.[1]
