[Francis M. Lyman]
[Council] Pres[ident] Snow made nice opening speech. He censured bro[ther]s Thatcher and Merrill for not being with us. ... Bro[ther] Brigham reported that ... bro[ther] Merrill does not attend meetings in that ward and does not partake of the sacrament there. ... I spent the evening with B[isho]p B. Preston. Talked over Frank J. Cannon's transgressions. He only knows of one woman he ruined. A man was sent to come home from a mission for fear his wife would be ruined by Frank, and some talk about another girl.
