[Apostle Rudger Clawson]
"... [it is] the obligation resting upon the elders to carry the gospel to the white race and perform ordinances for the ancestors of the white race. If a negro has faith in the Gospel, repents of his sins and applies ... for baptism, he cannot be denied this precious blessing. ... [The] progeny of a white man who mingles his seed with that of a negro, are to be regarded as negroes."
[Rudger Clawson, letter to Brigham A. Hendricks, October 25, 1910, LDS Archives, in Charles W. Penrose, Diary]
