[Brigham Young Jr.]
... Bro[ther] Jno [John W.] Taylor who made some very unwise remarks [that in one rural area, 80 percent of LDS marriages involve premarital sex]. Pres[ident]. [George Q.] Cannon stated Bro[ther]. T[aylor]. was wrong, had no right to speak on hearsay accusing innocent persons of immoral practices [i.e., accusing members of the Tabernacle Choir of immorality]; laid some of it to his zeal. Pres[ident] Geo[rge]. Q. C[annon]. was very kind to Jno. [John] and allayed feeling which was aroused against Jno. [John] W. T[aylor].
