125 years ago today - Friday, May 25th, 1888

[Apostle Abraham H. Cannon Journal] I was out attending to some business, and among other things called to see Father with whom I had considerable talk about business. He desires me to learn the true condition of John Q.'s affairs. He told me that at the dedication of the Manti temple there were some remarkable manifestations of God's power. Various personages were seen. Phoebe Beatie saw a person standing behind D. C. Young while he was speaking. Halos were seen about the heads of several brethren, notably Apostle John W. Taylor. Voices were heard shouting "Hosannah," and singing was heard Bro. John S. Lewis stating that he could distinguish the various parts. These were encouraging evidences to the Saints that God is pleased with the work done, and still lives to control His Church In the evening I took Sarah and Mina for a ride.
