Joseph the Seer who made some edifying remarks concerning baptism for the dead. He said the Bible supported the doctrin, "why are ye baptized for the dead if the dead rise not &c" if their is one word of the Lord that supports the doctrin it is enough to mak[e] it a true doctrin. Again if we can baptize a man in the Name of the Father of the Son & of the Holy Ghost for the remission of sins it is just as much our privilege to act as an agent & be baptized for the remission of sins for & in behalf of our dead kindred who have not herd the gospel or fulness of it.
~ Joseph Smith
