[David O. McKay]
At 11:15 A.M., I called on Thos. J. Steed 2742 Adams Ave., relative to his having entered into an alleged plural marriage.
Several important things he admitted; viz.,
(1) That he has entered into such a marriage.
(2) That the one performing ceremony claimed authority to do so.
(3) That it was hinted to him that there is a 'union' or 'secret organization' attempting to perpetuate such marriages; but he says 'To hell with such a union'.
(4) That perhaps the best way to learn more about this would be to attend the funerals of men and women how have recently entered into alleged plural marriages.
