According to Philo Dibble, there were about a dozen brethren in the translating room when this vision came to Joseph and Sidney. Dibble affirmed that he "saw the glory and felt the power, but did not see the vision." As the two men received the vision, Joseph the Prophet would say in intervals, "What do I see?" Then he would relate what he had seen, as a person might who was looking out the window and beholding scenes withheld from the other occupants of the room. Shortly afterward, Sidney would reply, "I see the same." Not a sound or motion was made by anyone except the two whose eyes were opened to the vision. While the wonders of the heavens were focused to their view, Joseph the Seer sat firmly and calmly in the midst of his magnificent glory, but his scribe sat limp and pale. Observing Elder Rigdon, Joseph smiled, "Sidney is not used to it as I am."Andersen
