Patriarchal Blessing of Huntington Johnson given by Joseph Smith, Sr. ... At a blessing meeting held in the Lord's house in Kirtland ... Thou hast the promise of long life, even eighty seven years. ... Sickness shall flee away from thy touch * the lame man may leap like an hart * the dumb shall sing.

The Lord shall strengthen thee and quicken thine intelligence. quicken thy memory renovate the system of thy body, make thee sound in Soul and body. ... I seal thee up to Eternal life. Amen
