The Seer, pgs. 38-39; “If we admit that one personage was the Father of all this great family, and that they were all born of the same Mother, the period of time intervening between the birth of the oldest and the youngest spirit must have been immense…But as heavenly things are, in many respects, typical of the earthly, it is altogether probable that the period required for the formation of the length as that required in this world for the organization of the infant tabernacle.” – Orson Pratt
