Sunday evening prayer circle at the upper room of the Mansion House; anointing and endowment ceremony for Jane Silverthorne (Law), Rosannah Robinson (Marks), Elizabeth Davis (Brackenbury Durfee Smith), and Mary Fielding (Smith) . Emma Hale Smith washed and anointed these women . Joseph Smith "reanointed [William] Law" in the Anointed Quorum due to Law's confession of adultery committed since his 1842 endowment. These priesthood ordinances were not otherwise announced or repeated.
