[Brigham Young]
It is against [the] law for a woman to take an Indian husband. That curse was taken off the Lamanites when the Book of Mormon came forth. Joseph committed to me the keys to open the gospel to every Lamanite nation'-Where a man gets a dower out of a family, he is entitled to the whole family'-The governing principle is in the husband, and by prayer they will bring forth white children [from Indians]'-take them and baptize them, baptize all creation. -- Winter Quarters, Nebraska
