[Wilford Woodruff]

Elder Abram O Smoot was again attacked by the destroyer Which brought him upon a bed of Great disstress. We immediately called upon the Elders of the Church, viz. Elders O Hide & H C Kimble of the twelve & B. Nobles, M. Holmes, & myself of the first Seventy. We prayed with & for him & lade hands upon him according to the scriptures & he was immediately healed of his pain & fever <in the name of Christ>.
