I took Emma & two of her Children Nelly & Alice & went to the [unfinlshed Salt Lake] Temple & w[er?] drawn up to the top tower in an Elevator myself & family. We all put a Dime apiece into the Top stone [to raise money to complete the temple]. We went through Every room in the House. We saw a great Deal of work yet to be done in order to get the work done by next April Conference.
