[George Albert Smith]
Golden R. Buchanan, coordinator on Indian Affairs and assistant to Brother Kimball on the Indian work, was there discussing with Brother Kimball Indian matters. We sat in the Hotel room for some time discussing various problems with reference to their work. Unfortunately, there seems to be some stake presidents and mission presidents, and even one or two of the Brethren of the presiding council of the Church, who seem not fully to appreciate the real importance of this Indian work, and who feel somewhat, as expressed by Brother Kimball, that it is like a ship passing in the night. I have made a note of this point and plan to discuss it further with the brethren and perhaps take it up at General Conference.
