At a patriarchal blessing Meeting held in the Lord[']s House in Kirtland ... The activity and vigor of youth shall be given thee. old age shall not prevail against thee. ... [you] shall live to see the end of wickedness, see Zion flourish see the winding up scene of this generation and see Jesus Christ come in the clouds of heaven. in power and great glory. These blessings are given to thee on condition of keeping the commandments of God. In the name of Jesus Christ I seal all these on thy head, by the power of the priesthood I seal thee up unto eternal life Amen.
