85 years ago today - May 1, 1935

[Heber J. Grant]

Abraham Lincoln has been referred to by some as the ugliest man that ever lived. The story goes that on one occasion he met my father-in-law, Daniel H. Well, and said to him, 'Wells, prepare to die. I have sworn that if I ever met a man uglier man than myself, I would shoot him.' Daniel H. Wells is reported to have said, 'Shoot, Abe,'if I am uglier than you, I want to die.'

[Heber J. Grant, Letter to Robert K. Cutler, as quoted in Minutes of the Apostles of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 1910-1951, Privately Published, Salt Lake City, Utah 2010]
