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.
