[George Q. Cannon]
Bro. D. R. Bateman called for me in a buggy, and I disguised myself and went with him to President Woodruff's, where we met with Bros. Waddell & Le Grand Young. Our conversation was on legal points connected with the securing of our [confescated] Church property... In the evening I called upon my wives Martha and Eliza. ... Being compelled to be away from home, as I am, is a great loss to my children. I notice that when I can spend a little time with them they work with diligence and take pleasure in doing so; but when left to themselves, having no experience and no one to guide them, they do not accomplish much.
