[Heber J. Grant]
I regret more than words of mine can tell the absence of a majority of the members of our quorum from the dedication [of the Manti temple] and my gratitude will know no bounds when in the kind providences of our Heavenly Father our quorum can meet as they did before the raid under the Edmunds Tucker bill started. No pen can picture the sufferings and heart aches our people have undergone. I take no pleasure in thinking about them or writing anything on the subject.
