The Patriarchal Blessing of HowardEgan, Son of Howard & AnnEgan.  Born … June 1815.

Brother Howard, I lay my hands upon your head in the name & by the authority given me of Jesus Christ, & place a blessing upon you, consonant with your lineage and your rights unto the Priesthood, for Behold, I say unto you, Howard, you are of the lineage of David, & of the Tribe of Judah. Nevertheless you Shall come to Zion, unto the Covenant that Shall be made with the House of Israel, wherein God will write his Law in their hearts & print it in their thoughts, therefore you shall have an inheritance in Mount Zion. And your house or your posterity that cometh after you – And you have a right unto the Priesthood, & blessings according to the prophetic visions of your Fathers, and the day Shall come when you Shall magnify an holy calling, & come up to the Anointing & the endowment, and by numbered with the called & chosen, & have your name written together, with your acts in the Archives and Chronicles of your brethren, as also perpetuated by your posterity, in the blessings of the Priesthood, from generation to generation, Even until the latest genera­tion. And you Shall be blessed in your temporal associations & in your habitations, And your days and years Shall be given unto you according to your faith, & the desires of your heart. These Blessings I seal upon you, Even So, Amen.

Given by Hyrum Smith at Nauvoo Ill., September 24, 1843.
