Presidents Young and Kimball spent about 4 hours with us in reading history. We read President Kimball synopsis of his history which has Cost us vast labour and perplexity. We also read Amasa Lymans History. Both was approved of. I feel vary thankful that we in a measure are getting through with the History of the Twelve for it has Cost me nearly a years hard brain labor.
