Patriarchal Blessing of William Holton Sheldon given by Joseph Smith, Sr. ... At a blessing meeting ... I ask God the Eternal Father, to put into my heart a knowledge of thy blessing, that I may know what to say to thee. I design to speak the will of God that I may not come under condemnation. May the Lord grant thee power to understand the spirits, for many have gone out into the world. ...

The Lord will deal with thee as with a son. ... Thou shalt have three sons, and daughters. I don't say how many. Thy sons shall be mighty men in the earth, doing the work of God. ... I seal thee up to Eternal life Amen

[Patriarchal Blessing Book 1:124, 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]
