John Smith also gave Emily Partridge Smith Young, a plural wife to both Joseph and Brigham, the following Patriarchal Blessing : "Sister Emily, by virtue of the holy priesthood, I place my hands upon thy head in the name of Jesus of Nazareth, and seal upon thee a patriarchal or father's blessing, for thou art ... a lawful heir to the priesthood, which shall be conferred upon thee in fullness in due time ."

[Later Patriarchal Blessings, p. 46-47., as quoted at http://ordainwomen.org/quotes. See Quinn, "Mormon Political Conflicts" for full cite and context.]
