[George Q. Cannon]
The First Presidency had some conversation with President Lorenzo Snow respecting Temple ordinances. A practice has gained ground in some of the Temples of not permitting any one to act as proxy in the sealing ordinance or in adoptions who had not been sealed or adopted himself or herself. After reviewing the whole subject, President Woodruff decided, and we all acquiesced in the decision, that a person who had had his or her endowments could officiate in all the ordinances excepting the [[2 words redacted, probably 'second anointing']] even though they had not been sealed or adopted themselves before.
