What happened on this date in Mormon History - several curious snippets every day
130 years ago today - Apr 5, 1887
Apostle Heber J. Grant writes in his journal in response to a letter from Wilford Woodruff, "I do not think it is absolutely necessary that in case of the death of the President of the Church and the subsequent reorganization of the First Presidency that the President of the Twelve Apostles should be made the President of the Church. When I answer Broth[e]r Woodruff's letter I shall request him to point me to any revelation that states that this must be the case."
