[George F. Gibbs]

... Pres[ident] [Wilford] Woodruff declines to give Seconds [second anointings] to any members of the Church excepting those who have gathered to Zion; he says he must draw the line somewhere, and this is where he draws it. He says too that all faithful saints who have died without having the privilege of gathering with the body of the Church will receive all the blessings they are entitled to hereafter.

[George F. Gibbs to John D. T. McAllister, Mar. 6, 1897, in Anderson, Devery; The Development of LDS Temple Worship, 1846-2000: A Documentary History, http://amzn.to/TempleWorship]
