[George F. Richards]
Pres. Grant ordained Spencer Kimball and Ezra T. Benson apostles and set them apart members of the quorum of the Twelve. We then repaired to the Temple excepting Pres. Grant & Pres. Clark, the latter being out of the State. By request of Pres. McKay, I instructed the brethren on the tokens &c.
