Prest John Taylor Hannah [who had been married to Joseph E. Johnson for more than thirty years], the person in question, has never intimated to me orally or otherwise, that she desires a release and I do not feel exactly at liberty to act in the premises till she herself expresses such a wish.

If she will sign the following certificate, in presence of Prest McAlister and he witness the same, she then has my full consent to be sealed to whomsoever she pleases, and in the return of this certificate I am willing to sign a Bill of Divorce.

If this meet your approval please forward it to Prest McAllister Respectfully Lorenzo Snow.

This certifies that I wish to be released from Covenant and obligations, entered into between myself and Lorenzo Snow when sealed over the Alter in the Temple at Nauvoo.
