Patriarchal Blessing of Perrigrine Sessions. (Given by Isaac Morley.)

If you wilt notice the Word of Wisdom thy days shall be prolonged upon the earth and if it is the desire of thy heart thou shalt become a hunter among the mountains of the West and thy steps betrodden upon the banks of the Pacific to seek and to hunt out the long dispersed people ...

thou shalt live to see the curse taken from the earth, when she shall yield in her strength, when the ploughman shall overtake the reaper and the storehouse of the Lord filled to its fullness ...
