(D)   That the stones he cut be stacked in a single column from the basement to the chimney
From the life of William Huntington:   As a member of the High Council he helped to lay one of the corner stones of the Nauvoo Temple April 6, 1841. He commenced immediately upon the walls of the Temple and worked until the basement was done; then he cut stone until the top stone was laid; and by particular request the stones which he cut were laid in a column from the basement to the top of the chimney of the southwest corner. As soon as the Temple was ready for giving endowments he administered therein until the building was closed.
