[Brigham Young Sermon] Brothers and sisters, may the Lord God of Israel bless you and comfort your hearts - we realize you have seen scenes of affliction in your journey - thought it may be bitter in your bellies it shall be sweet - to attain eternal life and salvation is through great tribulations and sufferings. The ancient saints were hunted to the mountains same as we - we expect as long as we live in the flesh we have to war against the powers of darkness - the glory we are after is eternal and we must be eternal in our natures - so long as we are subject to sickness and have corruptible bodies - we have to have our new bodies and then gain eternal life. We had news of you before you left Kanesville - and I've prayed for you. You have come to share in our blessings. I believe you are as willing to endure as to share with us - we are not situated at present to place our brethren in comfort. this is the first season that we [-] [have] put both our hands to bring the poor to us - since Joseph Smith. I look to the time when we can see to poor in East west or south come - our prospects are flattering - I pray that we may not be fettered with fetters of darkness. Unless it is God deals out his providences - be patient - bear and endure all things - and look to all before us - all you see here, fences, fields, cottages, have been done in one year - We found here the wild Indians and wolves - you have more - we will do all we can for you - you will have to do for yourselves as we have - lawyers, mechanics, artists have to work to provide their bread - we had nothing to come to - we brought all here - your circumstances are more favorable and comfortable - what is your wish and will - we have city lots and farm land broke - we want your work - wish to employ you mechanics - money and bread is plenty - we have the best beef and bread country - and have health - my heart feels joyful - we will give you lots or farms - we want stone masons, cutlery, joiners - and you can have wheat, oats, pot., rye, gold and silver at your pleasure you are in a country where poverty is not know - this is the place that I have looked out for you - if you want to go with Father Morley to the sandpitch. I feel he is as good a man as old Elijah - and if you are disposed to go I should be glad to have you. I thankfully receive the present and may the Lord bless you, and all of your brethren in Wales and shall always have feelings of thankfulness to you. -- SLC Bowery [Thomas Bullock Minutes, LJA; Thomas Bullock—LDS Church Reporter, 1844-56.C, Archives, Church History Library, Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Salt Lake City, Utah.; GCM, Archives, Church History Library, Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Salt Lake City, Utah..; Leonard J.

[Patriarchal Blessings] [Patriarchal Blessing of Leah Young on October 28, 1849]
Great Salt Lake City, October 28, 1849. A blessing by John Smith, patriarch upon the head of Leah Young. Daughter of James & Margaret Smith, born Smith County Tennessee Dec 1st 1801.
Sister Leah, beloved of the Lord. I place my hands upon thy head in the name of Jesus of Nazareth and by virtue of the holy priesthood, I seal upon thee all the blessings of Priesthood that is sealed upon thy companion to the uttermost bounds of the Everlasting Hills. The Eye of the Lord is upon thee for good and he hath retired thee in thine afflictions and he will make up all thy losses and thou shalt be made to rejoice in the last days. Inasmuch as much as thou art patient, the days of thy sorrow shalt cease, and thou shalt be filled with joy unshakable. And thou shalt be blest with store of all kinds of riches in abundance -- have servants that will delight to do thy will and shalt ride in chariots and shalt rejoice in the abundance of the riches of the earth. Thy posterity shalt be numerous. None shalt be greater in the House of Israel. Thou shalt live until thou art satisfied with life and have part in the first resurrection and inherit all the blessings of the Redeemer's Kingdom in common with thy companion. Even so, Amen.
