Patriarchal Blessing of William W. Phelps given by Joseph Smith, Sr. ... Says Father Smith, What shall I say unto you? My answer, what the Lord put into your heart to say.

Well the Lord has put it into my heart to say, that you are a strange man.


That I Know.

[He then laid his hands upon my head ...]

... Thou art a pure descendant of Joseph, of the blood of Ephraim. Thou art a

speckled Bird,

and the Lord hath held thee up to be gazed at: Thou art a strange man. ...

Thou shalt see the city of Enoch. and shalt gaze upon it in all its glory: yea, thou shalt be exalted to the heavens; and thou shalt be able to comprehend all hidden mysteries which have been hid up from the foundation of the world; yea, thou shalt understand things that have not yet been revealed unto man. I seal upon thee a father's blessing; upon thee, and upon thy children and upon thy children's children: And thy wife, who is a pure descendant of Joseph, according to thy blood and lineage, shall be blessed with thee.-- ... thou shalt live through all the scenes of the last days, till the end, and then thou shalt be caught from the earth, up into the clouds, and meet thy Lord, as he comes in his glory, with all his holy angels with him; even so; for I seal these blessings upon you in the name of Jesus Christ: Amen.
