170 years ago today - Mar 26, 1842

[Brigham Young] --26-- Elder John Snider was blessed and set apart for his mission to England by President Joseph Smith and Elders Richards, Page and myself.

April 6, 7, and 8.-- I attended a special conference.

On the 8th, in company with Elders Kimball, O. [Orson] Pratt, Richards, Woodruff, George A. Smith, and Wight, we ordained 275 elders, being the most ordained in one day since the foundation of the Church.
