Brother L. John Nuttall received a letter from [possible plural wife of the late Wilford Woodruff] Madam [Lydia Von Finklestein] Mountford, in which she expressed a desire to come out here from New York, for a short visit and rest, but that she did not feel herself financially able to pay her expenses. Brother Nuttall having represented that he would look after her during her stay here and board her in his family, it was concluded to appropriate her railroad fare and expenses.
Sister Susa Y. Gates had been invited to attend the National Household Economic Association Conference to be held at Toronto, and read a paper, but she could not afford to do so, but intimated a desire to respond to the invitation provided the Church could pay her railroad fares. It was decided to pay her fare.
