[Anointed Quorum]

Evening met with the quorum. John E. Page & J[oseph]. C. Kingsbury were received[;] also Sara Ann Whitney, Hellen M. Kimball, Eliza R. Snow, [Mary] Page, [Mary Ann] Pratt, Olive G. Frost, Lucy [Decker] Seeley, Louisa Beaman.

[Note: some, possibly all of these women had been sealed to Joseph Smith, which would explain their early admission to the Quorum of Anointed under Brigham Young's leadership.]
