I visited Brother A. O. Smoot. I found him vary sick. I laid hands upon him with Dr Jeter Clinton & prayed for him. His family was discouraged about him fearing He would die. On my return to the office I spoke to President B Young about him. He said He would be around again in few days. He saw him in a dream the night before & thought He would soon get well.
