Patriarchal blessing of William Swartzell, Pronounced by Joseph Smith, Sr[.], at a -"Blessing Meeting,-" ...Thy mission is to the West; thou mu[s]t go to the distant wilds; thou must even cross the Rocky Mountains, and raise thy voice to thy brethren in the Far West, even to many tribes and nations of them that are in darkness, and hunt the distant wilds. ... Thou shall have an inheritance in Zion, and dwell there with thy family. ... and I seal thee up to eternal life. Even so; Amen.
