115 years ago today - Dec 13, 1897; Monday

I find that many of my brethren condone what I said in defense of overloaded tax payers. I Condemn High Schools as a public charge. District free schools are sufficient tax upon us. George Gibbs said to me that some one had said that, it was my opposition which caused the Gentiles to rally to a man and elect their entire ticket. I am glad of it and hope that their union will show the saints where their saf[e]ty lies. God hasten the [day] when "My sheep Know my voice & a stranger they will not follow."
