Elder Jno. H. Smith said that Brother Brigham Young, whom he had recently visited, besides being extremely sick, was distressed and worried about his financial condition. Besides the usual expenses of his family, he was extending assistance to a sick son in Mesa, Arizona. After some discussion it became the sense of the council that Brother Brigham be not allowed to suffer from financial embarrassment, and that, therefore, his wants be relieved.
