I transacted my business and returned to Albany, where I took steamboat for New York, and found cousin A.[lbert] P. Rockwood on board. ... I ordained Brother Rockwood an elder, predicting on his head that his family should all be gathered into the kingdom, and that there should be a branch of the Church raised up in his native town, Holliston, Massachusetts, where he then resided and kept store, and set him apart to preside over said branch when it should be raised up.
