120 years ago today - Oct 12, 1898

[J. Golden Kimball]
At 6 P.M. met with the General Board of the Y.M.M.I.A. at the Presidents office. ... We got along very nicely, until Bro[ther Grant wanted his brother B[righam] F. Grant to be assistant manager of the 'Improvement Era,' and unintentionally said, if I can get him there, the Gen[era]'l Board will find him so useful that they will want him to be one of the General Board. B[righam] F. Grant was a wicked man about a year ago and because he has repented and is a brother to Heber J Grant we have to have him crowded on us, and hear of him on all occasions. My brother Solomon has repented for sixteen years and received no recognition at all.

[J. Golden Kimball, Diary, as quoted in Minutes of the Apostles of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 1835-1951, Electronic Edition, 2015]
