[John Henry Smith]
Salt Lake City
I had sealed to me today in the Salt Lake Temple by Adolph P. Madsen Emma Louise Robbins, born May 27th, 1850 at San Francisco California. Ellen Louise Barrett Summerhays was proxy.
I sealed Emma Ray Riggs to David Oman McKay. In the evening a reception was held and all had an enjoyable time.
Emma L. Robbins was the wife of O. H. Riggs, who himself secured a divorce from her in the East. He has gone out of the church. She on her dying had requested to be sealed to me.
