Patriarchal Blessing of Sarah Mackley given by William Smith .... in this blessing is thy lineage made known, thy fathers were of the Royal stock, they were those that had the Priesthood, and administered before the alter [altar], they offer[e]d sacrifices and made atonements for sins, the power of this Priesthood having been lost from thy progenitors, for many of them were holy and righteous men and begat to them a great name in their day, has been restored again and will be p[l]aced upon the head of thy posterity, and in this the seed of the house of Israel shall be made known, from among the Gentiles, and their offspring among the nations, no blessing or promise that was made to Abraham to be ansuered [answered] upon the heads of his daughters shall fail, of being fulfilled upon thee, ... and from bondage shalt thou be set free, for a friend shall be given thee who is mighty, and none shall surpass his glory in the Priesthood, his name shall be counted great and in thy lifetime shalt thou consider it and this blessing shall be fulfilled upon thine head. ...
