[Apostle Francis M. Lyman]
I taught Sister Mary Ann Price Hyde that is was not a sin but a virtue for a man to live with and have children by his plural wife. There was nothing wrong about it only in being caught by the law. A man should be brave enough to run some chances. She acknowledged she had taken the wrong view of it and gladly stood corrected. I did the same for Aunt Bathseba Smith.
