[Thomas A. Clawson Diary]
"In October  the regular Semi Anual (Sic) Conference convened in this City and among the events which transpired was the filling of the vacancies in the Quorum of the the Twelve Apostles the Lord revealing that Owen Woodruff and Mathias Cowley were the men. This was a great surprise to many because they had it all arranged in their own minds as to whom they thought ought to be appointed. However the Lord knows whom he wants and if we will only sustain them he will bless us abundantly in the same."
