thine shall be thy lot Dear Brother to see great signs and wonders in thy day and generation to behold the crumbling of Babylon the [illegible] my vengenance [vengeance] of God when it shall be poured out there with Priesthood authority with which thou art clothed thou shalt make known the power of the ministry inherited from thy fathers even thy progenitors for many of them administered before the Sanctuary of the Lord which ministry & priesthood is now confirmed upon thy head by an irrevocable decree according to the order of God ...
