[Brigham Young]
When hands were laid upon a gentile to impart the Holy Ghost it would produce spasms, and if a gentile would continue faithful his blood would be changed and become the seed of and blood of Abraham, sometimes in one family 6 persons would be gentiles, and one in the family would be of Israel, the blood having been gathered in into that one from their progenitors.
