[Marion G. Romney]
President Clark called again, and cautioned me about taking care of my health. He said that he was calling me pursuant to the instructions of the 121st Section of the Doctrine and Covenants, which says:
"No power or influence can or ought to be maintained by virtue of the Priesthood, only by persuasion ...."
Evidently, he thought he had spoken harshly last night when he called me.
