[George Q. Cannon]
... I think it quite a victory, and it shows what a wonderful change has taken place, when a Mormon [Frank Cannon] will be listened to and applauded by a National Convention, and be appointed also, as he was, on the Committee on Platform and Resolutions. ...

I went to the Temple at 11 o'clock and had a number of persons, living and dead, sealed to me. Sister Gillies had made an appointment to meet me here. She came with her son and had her family adopted to me. Brother Engelstad and wife, also, had come from Long Valley to be adopted with their kindred dead, and Brother Daniel Sill was also adopted.

President Woodruff had a large number of people [130] adopted to him. ... President Woodruff was very much fatigued with the labor he performed.
