[Wilford Woodruff]

It has been the rule in [the] Logan Temple not to allow any person who had not been married under the covenant to officiate at the marriage alt[a]r in behalf of the dead. This rule, he said was wrong and must not be acted upon in the future. The reception of the endowment enabled a person to act in behalf of the dead in any of the ordin ances in the house of the Lord, except the highest [second anointing].

[Wilford Woodruff, Special Meeting of the Workers of the St. George Temple, temple annex, June 23, 1893 , typed excerpt in Buerger Papers, in Anderson, Devery; The Development of LDS Temple Worship, 1846-2000: A Documentary History, http://amzn.to/TempleWorship]
