[Patriarchal Blessing of Elizabeth Stout by John Smith]
... to have faith to preserve the lives of thy children, until they are old. Thy name shall be had in honorable remembrance to the end of time. Thou shalt have a numerous offspring; the weakest of thy sons shall be like David, yea, to chase a thousand, and two of them shall put ten thousand to flight. ... thou shalt be able to spread a table, to feed thousands; shall have Men servants, and Maid servants to wait on thy Table. Thou shalt live to see the winding up scene of this generation, if thou desire it, shal see the accomplishment of all that the Prophets spoke concerning the latter-day glory, and be fully satisfied ...

[Patriarchal Blessings]
