This evening a meeting, of Elders, was [called] by the president of said quorum, to instruct them, that they may prepare themselves for the holy anointing.

["Purification" ... consisted of having one's body washed and bathed with cinnamon-perfumed whiskey and later washing one's own body with pure water and perfume.] ...
