[Joseph F. Smith]
President [John] Taylor presented his views in writing on the subject of the priesthood which were read to the council. Some enquiries and explanations were made, and some doubts expressed by Bro[ther]s. O[rson]. Pratt and Geo[rge]. Q. Cannon. Ithink the President's views are verycorrect and I can most freely endorse them.
