[Apostle Francis M. Lyman]
He [i.e., Wilford Woodruff] also told us he wished us at our regular meeting of our Quorum next Tuesday to give attention to a trouble existing between bro[ther] Moses Thatcher and bro[ther] Marriner W[ood]. Merrill, and gave us the correspondence in the case. Pres[ident] Cannon offered prayer. Pres[ident] Woodruff told us he never had misgivings about any can brought into the quorum of Apostles but one. That was bro[ther] [Albert] Carrington. At close of our meeting the Thatcher- Merrill correspondence was read in hearing of Pres[ident] [Lorenzo] Snow, [Brigham] Young [Jr.], [Francis M.] Lyman, [Heber J.] Grant and A[braham]. H. Cannon.
