Andrew Borgeson correspondence
Scope and Contents
Two letters exchanged between Andrew Borgeson and Joseph F. Smith, an apostle in the Mormon Church, concerning the former being sealed by adoption into the family of Hyrum Smith. In the first letter, Andrew Borgeson refers to an earlier meeting with Joseph F. Smith where Smith discussed the subject of adoption sealings. Smith's reply explains that these sealings are currently available at the St. George Temple and can be performed by himself or his cousin, John L. Smith. Smith also adds that within approximately six months the Logan Temple would be completed, and the sealing could be performed there.
