[John Henry Smith]
The Committee on Wages reported and the report was read and received. Bp. W. B. Preston made a recommend that the Twelve be put on the same footing as to pay. After consideration, the allowance for the Twelve and Bishopric was fixed at $3,000.00 each. The whole report was considered and some of the recommendations were adopted and some laid over for the time being.
