[Joseph F. Smith and counselors]

The fact that Elder Thomas L. Kerr has voluntarily confessed to his wrong doing goes to show that his repentance is genuine, and inasmuch as you yourself belief this to be the case you may baptize him for the remission of his sins and the renewal of his covenants, and re-confirm upon him his former blessings. And this you may do in a strictly private way and without making any record whatever of the baptism.

[First Presidency, Letter to F. S. Bramwell, as quoted in Minutes of the Apostles of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 1835-1951, Electronic Edition, 2015]
