License for Frederick G. Williams, 20 March 1833

Frederick G. Williams, who had been serving as JS’s scribe during the previous year and since January 1833 as his counselor, received the appointment on 8 March 1833 as a “president of the high priesthood.” Ten days later, on 18 March 1833, JS ordained Williams and Sidney Rigdon as presidents. This certificate and license attested that Williams was both worthy of that office and properly ordained to it.
Williams drafted this document. JS and Sidney Rigdon both signed it.
