125 years ago today - Sep 15, 1888

[Apostle Heber J. Grant Diary] Bro[ther] George Q Cannon informed me a few days ago that it was his intention to surrender himself to the court and go to the penitentiary for "unlawful cohabitation" He said he had had assurances that he should not be sentenced for more than six months. I certainly think it is wisdom for him to purchase his liberty at this price. [Sentenced for 175 days; fined $450.]
