[John D. T. McAllister]
Gave instruction to give nothing but the proper wording when washing, anointing, etc. Pres[ident] [Brigham] Young once said that Free Masonary is the corruption of the keys and powers of the Holy Priesthood. So would these Endowments be changed if we were not particular about the proper wording of these ceremonies. Instructed the recorders to be careful, for a great responsibility rested upon them.
