So shall it be with my father: he shall be
called a prince over his posterity, holding
the keys of the patriarchal priesthood over the kingdom of God on earth, even the Church
of the Latter Day Saints, and he shall sit in the general assembly of patriarchs, even in
council with the Ancient of Days when he shall sit and all the patriarchs with him and shall
enjoy his right and authority under the direction of the Ancient of Days.

  • Notes 
    • The History of the Church pg 21 - Lydia Mack, the third daughter of Solomon Mack, was less religiously inclined than her sisters. Of here it is said: "She seemed to float more with the stream of common events. ... She sought riches and obtained them: yet in the day of prosperity she remembered the poor, for she dealt out her substance to the needy with a liberal hand to the end of her days, and died the object of their affection." (ibid ch. v.) ------------------------- History of Joseph Smith By His Mother- Pg 26 Of my sister Lydia I shall say but little; not that I loved her less, or that she was less deserving of honorable mention, but she seemed to float more with the stream of common events than those who have occupied the foregoing pages; hence fewer incidents of a striking character are furnished for the mind to dwell upon She sought riches and obtained them; yet in the day of prosperity she remembered the poor, for she dealt out her substance to the needy with a liberal hand to the end of her days and died the object of their affection. As she was beloved in life, so she was bewailed in death.
