-- Jul 27, 1897
[President Wilford Woodruff Journal] July 27th I was somewhat restless the fore part of last night but slept soundly from 1.30 am to 7 a.m and felt better for it. I do not eat enough food to keep up my strength. Prest Geo. Q. Cannon called for a short time this morning. Pres. Lorenzo Snow called this afternoon & staid nearly an hour in conversation. Bro Nuttall also called for an hour, I feeling quite cheerful. (1)

... [Lorenzo Snow:] He said the Patriarch Joseph Smith, the father of the Prophet, had stated in his patriarchal blessing, that he should have power, when not able to visit the sick, to send his handkerchief to them, and that the afflicted by touching it should be made whole. To the unbelieving, such a statement as this would be very ridiculous. But on one occasion, a sister residing at Kaysville [Utah], whose husband was very sick, and who had read Pres[iden]t. Snow's patriarchal blessing, sent from Kaysville to Brigham City [Utah] in the dead of winter, requesting him to send a handkerchief to her husband, which he did, after having first blessed it, and the brother was healed immediately upon receipt of the handkerchief.
