[George F. Richards]
Attended weekly council meeting in the Temple where I received the appointment to attend, alone, the Jordan Stake Conference Aug. 8&9. In my report I suggested that the last written speech of [recently passed away anti-evolutionist preacher] Wm. J. Bryan on Christianity & Evolution should be published in pamphlet form or in some form where it could be referred to and be accessible. Pres. Grant said it could be published in the Improvement Era. After the meeting I phoned Editor Ed. Henderson who said he would see to it &c.
