[George Q. Cannon]
I also received a painful letter from Brother Wm. H. Shearman. He feels himself unworthy to bear the priesthood and desires to be dropped from it, and returns me his certificate. He is threatened with dementia, and I fear that he will lose his reason. He suffers dreadfully, it seems, from this depression, and has the idea that he is utterly unworthy of the Lord's favor.
