Sunday prayer circle "in the upper room" of Smith's old home ... and the participants "attended to ordinances" . Because of his recent conversion to polygamy, Hyrum Smith may have been the one who performed the sealing of Emma Hale Smith to Joseph Smith for time and eternity on this date. James Adams was also sealed to his first wife Harriet Denton Adams . Because William Law attended the previous meeting of the Anointed Quorum, he probably also attended this one .
