John Pack, part 2.5

This is not the next part in the series, I just wanted to let you know that we put up a portion of John Pack’s autobiography/journal on boap.org here It’s an interesting, if short, reminiscence which gives Pack’s patriarchal blessing from Joseph Smith, Sr. among other things. Those acquainted with upper division temple liturgy will find something there too, as well as “adoption.” Note that Pack’s first wife, Julia, is also represented.

    This is really quite an extraordinary record. Thank you for making it more available. As you can imagine, I find it not only fascinating, but also useful.

    It’s interesting that Father Smith made such an issue of the Word of Wisdom.

      I noticed that too. I wonder what he meant by it precisely? Both in the sense of observing it and why it came up (or why he was inspired to mention it).
