Patriarchal Blessing of Samuel Bell given by William Smith ... thou art a legal heir in the kingdom of God and to the holy Priesthood, thy fathers were of a mighty nation and administered before the alter [altar], and through faith were made strong, waxed valiant in fight, put to flight the armies of the aliens and escaped the edge of the sword, they were men of unyielding Spirits, and who in eternity Volunte[e]red to take upon them tabernacles to fight the battles of the Lord, and be his ministers. it is for this cause thou hast been spared to live to behold this day and the glory of Zion ...

[Patriarchal Blessings]
