[Patriarchal Blessing]

Charles W. Hubbard, given by Joseph Smith Sen.

"... God will unveil the heavens to thee and thou shalt look and see the Redeemer, and shall hear this testimony, 'That thou hast seen Him,' as thou shalt go forth to the nations of the earth, for God hast looked upon thee from Eternity, and thou must listen to the Voice of Truth for thou wilt travel to the nations of the earth and in foreign lands ... thou must pray for thine enemies and not curse to the wild sons of the forest and to many Chiefs and this is the land where thou shalt preach to them and not in another and thou shalt fetch in thousands of them and shall rejoice with them in the Kingdom of Heaven.

... if thou wilt be faithful, thou shalt live to see the Savior come while in the flesh ... and shall live to see the winding up scenes of this generation and shall be crowned with Celestial Glory. All of these blessings I seal upon thee and seal thee up unto Eternal Life in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen."
