[Wilford Woodruff]
Brother Joseph Young & J M. Grant Assisted in Blessing the Elders [missionaries]. The spirit & power of God rested upon us in a great degree. The Heaven was opened unto us & our minds was filled with visions Revelations & Prophecy & we sealed great Blessings upon their heads as we were moved upon by the Holy Ghost & we told them things that would befal them by sea & by land. They will do a great work & gather many saints & much wealth to Zion.
