100 years ago today - Aug 29, 1923

Sister Lee, we lay our hands upon your head in the name of the Lord, and inasmuch as you have been chosen to act as the presiding woman in the temple, working in harmony with and under the direction of President [Edward J.] Wood, we bless you ... as you come in contact with women... to answer the questions which they may ask ... and to direct the labors of other women ... we seal upon you, and set you apart to this work in the name of Jesus Christ, our Redeemer. Amen.
