140 years ago today - Dec 30, 1882

[Wilford Woodruff]

30 {Wm. H Hooper Died 20 to 8 Dec 30} 1882 I dreamed last night that Capt Wm. H Hooper was Dead. I told my family this morning that when I heard from him I should hear he was /dead/ And Br Jaques informed me at the Historians office, that He died at 20 minuts to 8 oclok. I saw Capt Hooper in the spirit world in my dream. I saw his location and the limits by which he was bound and Could not pass. I had a view of mansions in the Celestial Kingdom of God which were Composed of beautiful stones and materials, and were actual Buildings as any on the Earth and that the Best Architects in heaven were imployed in their building.
