At the Hill Cumorah, Joseph Smith digs out a large rock with a stick lever, and tries three times to lift out the plates, but is prevented by Moroni. Benjamin Saunders and Willard Chase (neighbors) said that Joseph described the Moroni as having a toad-like appearance: "When he took the plates there was something down near the box that looked some like a toad that rose up into a man which forbid him to take the plates ..." Oliver Cowdery said he was "prevented from obtaining the gold treasure by a thrice-repeated shock that was produced upon his system." He was told to to bring his brother Alvin in one year.
