[Patriarchal Blessing]

Hannah Augusta Cheesbro. (Given by Joseph Smith, Sen.)

" ... Thou mayest stand when the Saviour comes if thou wishest it... it is given thee on condition of keeping the commandments and 'Word of Wisdom!' I seal it on thy head and I pray my Heavenly Father to seal it in heaven. By the power of the Holy Priesthood I seal thee up to Eternal Life. Amen."
