[Brigham Young Jr.]
How I have prayed that our Council meeting today may prove peaceful & happy.
Disturbing elements are at work in our quorum but I do pray mild currents will prevail. Pres[ident]. [Lorenzo] Snow asserted to day that, he did not bel[ie]ve, that Amasa M. Lyman formerly an apostle and since an apostate denying the mission of the Saviour would go to hell but that salvation would reach him. God is merciful and He knows I can only wait and see His salvation.
Bro[ther]. Jno. [John] H[enry]. S[mith]. pronounced things that Frank Cannon stated in his spe[e]ch in the Theatre as lies. Bro[ther] H[eber] J Grant was also a little excited but things passed smoothly and council adjourned.
