[First Presidency to LeGrand Richards]
In order to safeguard the patriarchs throughout the Church from imposition on the part of unworthy people it has been decided that in the future people desiring patriarchal blessings whether from patriarchs in the Stake or the Patriarch of the Church, should secure from their local authorities and present to the patriarch a certificate of recommendation vouching for their worthiness as members of the Church.

[First Presidency, Letter to LeGrand Richards, as quoted in Minutes of the Apostles of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 1835-1951, Electronic Edition, 2015]
