[Brigham Young Jr.]
Spent much of time in office. Pres[ident] [Lorenzo] Snow looks worn'tired out. God help him for his load is great. To me how useless this enormous debt under which the whole church is groaning today. While I beleive the intention was a heart felt desire to build up Zion, through the ill advised acts of men millions have been thrown away.
[Brigham Young Jr., Diary, as quoted in Minutes of the Apostles of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 1835-1951, Electronic Edition, 2015]
