[Apostle Heber J. Grant]
[At the funeral of Emily Partridge Young] Brother Joseph F. in his remarks to-day bore a wonderful strong testimony as to the devotion of Sister Young and others who had been sealed to the Prophet Joseph Smith as plural wives. He also bore a powerful testimony as to the rightfulness of plural marriage and the inspiration of almighty God to the Prophet Joseph Smith in restoring the same to the earth. He testified to the eternity of the marriage covenant. Referred to the fact that he looked upon me as his cousin, my mother having been sealed to the Prophet Joseph Smith for eternity. His remarks were very powerful indeed and delivered under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit.
