[Heber J. Grant]
John W. Silver called about doing temple work for his father, Joseph Silver. I told him of his father's dishonesty and of his misrepresenting things in connection with plural marriage and that we did not feel justified in allowing temple work to be done for him. Were we to do so it would be an acknowledgment that he and others who had violated the rules of the Church had done nothing very serious. I told him I was afraid we would have to leave his case in the hands of the Lord.
