[First Presidency and Quorum of the Twelve minutes]
Elder John W. Taylor, of the Council of the Apostles, called this morning, having just come from Canada. He had learned through correspondence with Canadian officials, that our people now settling permanently in that country, were entitled to three dollars a head for every adult male, two dollars for every adult female, and on dollar for every child, and it rested now with the First Presidency to decide whether this money should be accepted from the Canadian government. Brother Taylor had learned that they were offering five dollars a head for permanent settlers, and he recommended that the foregoing figures be not accepted until further investigation had been made.
