[George Q. Cannon]
I disguised myself and was driven by Bro. Wilcken to Bro. Armstrong's in time for breakfast. Presidents Woodruff and Jos. F. Smith were there. We had a very busy day; took some time to listen to the reading of the correspondence, which had accumulated. ... It was decided best to rent the Tithing Office [now under government control] and premises, even if $200/ per month had to be paid for them.
