He said there was a book deposited, written upon gold plates...

The first time Moroni appeared to Joseph Smith. "Not only was his robe exceedingly white, but his whole person was glorious beyond description, and his countenance truly like lightning... He called me by name, and said unto me that he was a messenger sent from the presence of God to me, and that his name was Moroni; that God had a work for me to do...He said there was a book deposited, written upon gold plates, giving an account of the former inhabitants of this continent, and the source from whence they sprang. He also said that the fulness of the everlasting Gospel was contained in it, as delivered by the Savior to the ancient inhabitants" (Joseph Smith-History 1:32-34 https://www.lds.org/scriptures/pgp/js-h/1.32-34?lang=eng#31 )
