March 4, Bro. Samuel Roskelly, president of the High Priests' Quorum of the Stake organized our prayer circle in the second ward, and I was in attendance and the brethren administered to me. We had a good time enjoying much of the Spirit of the Lord in the dedication of the room and in the order of prayer, together with much good instruction. There were 21 in attendance. We concluded to hold it the first Sunday of each month at noon.
