Joseph Smith dictating revelations to Emma

Emma Smith "continued to be amazed at the process through which
revelations came. Years after the Prophet's death she said: 'I am
satisfied that no man could have dictated the writing of the manuscripts
unless he was inspired; for, when acting as his scribe, [Joseph]
would dictate to me hour after hour; and when returning after meals, or
after interruptions, he could at once begin where he had left off, without
either seeing the manuscript or having any portion of it read to him.'
("Last Testimony of Sister Emma," The Saints' Herald, 1 Oct.
1879, 289.)"

- M. Russell Ballard, "Marvelous Are the Revelations of the Lord," Ensign, May 1998, 31
