Blessing for Frederick G. Williams, 2 October 1835

Blessed be brother Frederick [G. Williams], for he shall never want a friend, and his generation after him shall flourish: The  Lord hath appointed him an inheritance in the land of Zion. Yea, and his head shall blossom with old age, and he shall  be as an olive branch that is bowed down with fruit. And he shall be blessed with the abundance of the good things  of the earth because of the liberality of his soul, even with the precious things that couch beneath; even with gold  and with silver in abundance, and with antiquities of every kind: with precious stones, and with platina [platinum];  with houses and with lands, and with cattle, with charriots and with horses, and asses and with she  asses, with mules and camels, and dromedaries, and all swift beasts, at home and abroad, among  governors, rulers and kings, and nations afar off: and all these because of the liberality of his soul, always  abounding unto the poor. Therefore, the hand of his God shall be over him and his seed after him,  from generation to generation. And his head shall blossom and be as white as the pure wool— and his  rest shall be glorious: He shall be caught up to meet the Lord in the cloud, and ever be with  the Lord. Amen.
Oliver Cowdery, Clerk and Recorder.
