[George Q. Cannon]
We had some conversation about commencing to receive and disburse tithing at cash rates on Jany. 1^st. I took this opportunity of explaining to the brethren my views on this question. I have no aversion to bringing our tithing to cash rates, but I have felt very strongly concerning receiving the people's tithing at cash prices. I do not think it would be satisfactory; I do not think it would be fair and according to the intention of the Lord. ... President Woodruff expressed himself in favor of giving the brethren credit for that which they paid in, regardless of its cash prices.
