[Apostle John Henry Smith]
Salt Lake City
Prest. W. Woodruff, Jos. F. Smith, Lorenzo Snow, Franklin D. Richards, Brigham Young, Abraham H. Cannon, and I met at the Temple and had prayers and talked over some business matters. Nathan Tanner, Jr. had written an insulting letter to the first Presidency of the Church. It was agreed that the matter should be refered to the Bishop of his ward to pass upon and if he did not make reperation to be delt with for his fellowship.
