[Heber J. Grant]

After we had had our Prayer Circle I asked the Presidency to give me their counsel and advice with reference to what action should be taken about Hyrum Grant or me marrying the widow of [of their brother] Geo. Grant [as a Levirate marriage]. I told them that I was better able to care for four wives from a financial stand point than Hyrum was one [sic]. Told them that I had no desire to turn away from this matter in case there was a feeling that I should marry the widow. They were unanimously of the opinion that it would not be wise for me to take the step and suggested that I encourage Hyrum to do it.
