31 January 1887

Anniversary Celebration; Maria Y. Dougall Residence, Salt Lake City, Utah Territory

[. . .] There were present on the occasion some of the veteran women of the Church, among the number, Sister Eliza R. Snow Smith [. . .] [p. 140] [. . .]

Sister Eliza followed, alluding to the intimate association of Sister Zina and herself, these many years, their labors together in the Church, and, laying her hands upon Sister Zina’s head, pronounced upon her an impressive blessing, in which she earnestly implored her to take care of her own tabernacle, that she might have health and vigor of body, and strength of mind to perform the mission which had been given her to fill before she left the eternal worlds.1
