[President Heber J. Grant Diary]
During the day we have sent a number of cables regarding the prospective war in Europe arranging through the office of the Secretary of State for visas for our missionaries to get out of the country, suggesting that the missionaries go to Holland and the Scandinavian countries, and if war should break out that they should come on to America. We telegraphed to all our Mission Presidents in the United States asking how many missionaries they could utilize in the respective missions. President Clark has practically given his whole day to this matter; namely, cables, telegrams and interviews regarding conditions in Europe.
