The President then pronounced a blessing upon him John Wilkie and his companion, that they should have the blessing of God to attend them in their basket and in their store; that they should have the blessing of health and salvation and long life, inasmuch as they would continue to walk in obedience to the commandments of God. May the Lord grant his spirit and peace to abide upon brother Wilkie and his companion through the remainder of their days, may their hearts expand and become enlarged to receive the fulness of the blessings of <​the​> kingdom of heaven; may they have the light of eternal truth continual<​ly​> springing up in them like a well of living water; may they be shielded from the powers of Satan, and the influence of designing men, and their faith increase from day to day untill they shall have power to lay hold on the blessings of God and the gifts of the spirit untill they are satisfied, and finally may they live to a good old age and when they have lived while they desire life may the[y] die in peace and be received into the mansions of eternal life and enjoy a celestial glory for ever and ever even so Amen. — [p. 449]
