[Apostle John Henry Smith Diary] Liverpool

... Bro. R. R. Anderson says that Bro. A. [Apostle Albert] Carrington cannot get within the neighborhood of a woman without fondling her and that the Houseskeeper was petted and fondled by him, and familiarities taken that brought disgrace upon the house untill the people across the way had threatened to mob the house. Bp. O. F. Whitney said he took her to London and that she just lorded it over every lady in the House. R. R. Anderson had warned the present Housekeeper against bro. Carrington. It was reported that the people over the way saw him laying upon her in the prayer room. The one that is gone to Utah.
