[Esaias Edwards]
On the seventeenth of July 1857 we received our sealing by Brigham Young the prophet of the Lord in the house of endowments at the Alter of the Lord, Belinda [Miles] acting [as] Proxy. I first had Elizabeth Cam[p]bell sealed to me for eternity. Afterwards I had Sarah Catharine Gibbs sealed to me for eternity. Afterwards I had Belinda Miles sealed to me for time and all eternity. Brigham also blessed me and my wives with an endless Priesthood and posterity and the gift of eternal lives through faithfulness.
