Patriarchal Blessing of Clarissa Aurelia Perry given by Joseph Smith, Sr. ... At a blessing meeting held in the Lord's House in Kirtland ...

O God the Eternal Father * thy servant feels for this thy handmaiden * he desires to feel as God feels * let me know her situation * Let thy maid servant feel that thy spirit feel that thy spirit is about her and that in thy hands she is safe.

... God will bless thee and give thee an inheritance in Zion, nothing shall hinder thee. ... If thy companion does not repent and give up his opposition to the work of the Lord, the disease which is now upon him shall prevail against him, but if he will repent his life shall be given him and he shall have an inheritance with thee in the city of Zion. ... Thy children shall be gathered in Zion. Thou shalt see the glory of God resting on Zion * thou shalt behold the Lord even Jesus, shalt behold him in peace. ... I seal thee up to Eternal life * even so * Amen
