[Heber J. Grant]
[Letter from Joseph F. Smith:] For the first time, this month the Church could not pay its employees, not the Presidency and Twelve. Well do not think I have lost hope'for I have not. I believe that Providence has something better in store for us than bankruptcy and ruin, but it will be a close shave in my opinion. May the Lord help us!
