125 years ago today - May 2, 1895

First Presidency and apostles consider request for excommunication by George C. Williams who "feels to condemn the Church for allowing Isaac Haight, who is said to have been one of the leaders in the Mountain Meadows Massacre to remain [actually, be rebaptized] in the Church after his participation in that terrible crime. In that massacre Williams is said to have lost fourteen relatives." Apostle George Teasdale records: "Today Pres[ident] Geo[rge] Q. Cannon very humbly apologized to bro[ther] George Goddard in bro[ther] Reynolds office for the joke he perpetrated upon him last evening in the 14th ward Assembly hall."
