80 years ago today - Jan 8, 1940

[Heber J. Grant]

I received an anonymous letter tonight from California telling of a woman, a grand-daughter of Brigham Young, reviewing the book 'The Children of God' [by Vardis Fisher] in the Wilshire Ward meeting house. I felt outraged that the brethren would hold a meeting and have a review for this miserable, lying book. It is a novel, of course; therefore, one cannot sue the publishers, but I thank the Lord that the description of the early Pioneers is a falsehood pure and simple. The author is guilty of saying some good things, of course, which helps to sell his book.
