Patriarchal Blessing of Mary A. Baldwin given by Joseph Smith, Sr. ... Thou shalt receive of the spirit of prophecy and become a mother in Israel. Thou shalt live to instruct the Daughters of the Lamanites and teach them to labor. Thou shalt teach them the principles of the gospel. Thou shalt teach them the principles & holiness. Thou shalt assist to labor with thy hands to adorn the temple of the Lord which shall be built in the city of Zion. Thou hast been innocent in thy life, and thou shalt live to see the Savior come in the clouds of heaven and behold the winding up scene of this generation, when wickedness is is destroyed and swept away from the Earth. If thou wilt prove faithful all these blessings shall come on thee. In the name of Jesus I seal all these blessings upon thy head. I seal thee up unto eternal life, even so Amen

[Patriarchal Blessing Book 1:95-96, in Early Patriarchal Blessings of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, Joseph Smith Sr. (Author), H. Michael Marquardt (Editor), http://amzn.to/rCBHVe]
