[Apostle Heber J. Grant]
[After arriving in Salt Lake City] I had no faith when Bro Young and I left Salt Lake for Orderville that anything could be accomplished in uniting the people of that place and getting them to continue to labor in the United Order. I felt in my heart as though the First Presidency were asking us to do something which was almost an impossibility. I have been thankful that our labors were successful. I don't know but what I should say we accomplished our mission without any labor. My heart is full of gratitude to think our Heavenly Father prepared the saints to continue to work unitedly without any counsel on our part.
