[First Presidency to David H. Cannon]
This is in answer to yours of the 23rd inst., in which you state in substance that a certain woman was married to a man tainted with negro blood by whom she had several children, all of whom are dead, and that she became separated from her husband before her death, and that her friends now desire her to be sealed to a good man, she having died in the faith, and have her children sealed to her and the man she is to be sealed to. We see no reason why this should not be done, as the sealing alone would not constitute these children with tainted blood heirs of the priesthood without ordination.

[First Presidency, Letter to David H. Cannon, as quoted in Minutes of the Apostles of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 1835-1951, Electronic Edition, 2015]
