D. P. Kimball Spok 2 M and asked Can a man have an Exhaltation without a wife or two? Presidet Young said you Cannot put a gallon Measure in a pint Measure but both Can be filled full. If a man is faithful with one wife he will grow to be a gallon measure. Some men have not judgment & wisdom. A Badlam whiped his wife for fear She would disobey him....
The Question of Adoption was preached. Presidt Young said the Priesthood had been on the Earth at different times. When the Priesthood has not been on Earth Men will have to be sealed to Each other untill we go on to Father Adam. Men will have to be sealed to Men so as to link the Chain from begining to End & all Children will have to be sealed to their Parents that was born before they had their Endowments. But this must be in A Temple & No whare Els. Joseph will be with us No doubt & Joseph will have to be sealed to Somebody But it will require Revelation to do this. Elijah Holds those keys & who ever holds those keys holds the keys of Elijah.
... He said a Man might take his own life without Committing Suicide but a woman should not be sealed to a Man who had Committed Suicide without Revelation.
