[Brigham Young Jr.]
Understand that 500 000 Church Bonds have been sold to our people or [blank] or home people. Pres[ident]. [Lorenzo] Snow gave me private papers to read concerning our indebtedness and moral responsibility for debts. It is a mystery to me where these millions have gone to say nothing of the 6 or 700 000 dol in come we have every year which for years has vanished like the rest. God help us, and I know he will.
