[President Heber J. Grant Diary]
Glen Smith, a son of the late Apostle John Henry Smith, called, and I had a long talk with him telling of the reasons that led to the dropping of John W. Taylor and Matthias Cowley from the Quorum of the Apostles and entered into detail regarding my interviews with Cowley. When he left he expressed pleasure at my explanation of things and said he felt first-class about the status of things, for which I was grateful.
