[Abraham Owen Woodruff]
Attended our Quorum meeting in the Temple. ... Pres[iden]t. [Lorenzo] Snow said it was the will of the Lord that we do all we can to elect Pres[iden]t. [George Q.] Cannon to the U.S. Senate.
[Cannon is chosen by the state legislature to be Utah's senator but the U.S. Senate refuses to seat a Mormon polygamist.]
