175 years ago today - Aug 12, 1845

Mrs. Sally (Stacey) Murdock, a Mormon widow who wrote from Nauvoo that, "There has been but few elders sent out since the death of the prophet but when the seventies receive their endeument they will go forth with power to all the nations kindreds tongues and people of the earth . . ." "Endued" is a term used in masonic ceremonies, (I.E. "Since he comes endued with all these necessary qualifications, let him enter this Worshipful Lodge in the name of the Lord, and take heed on what he enters," William Morgan, Illustrations of Masonry" pp. 46-47, 65 [1827])
