I spent these three days in Salt Lake, mostly at the President's office, working on various matters. I got up a comparative statement for Pres. Snow, showing the cash tithing paid during the first 6 months in 1899 and in 1900. The sum totals were as follows:
Cash tithing paid during 1st 6 months in 1899
Cash tithing paid during 1st 6 months in 1900
From this showing Pres. Snow assumed that the tithing for 1900 would be fully as much as paid in 1899, which I feel is a just conclusion.
