175 years ago today - Mar 3, 1844

Sunday evening prayer circle of "the quorum"; political meeting accepted Joseph Smith's nomination of his first choice as vice presidential candidate, Mormon James Arlington Bennet; "remarks from a number of the brethren." The female members of the Anointed Quorum apparently attended this meeting without voicing views on its political agenda. [Bennet is later dropped because he was born outside the U.S.]
