The United Order of Salt Lake City No. 1 Met in the old Tabernacle at 10 oclok, being the first Presidency, Twelve Apostles, & some fifty others without wives. ...

He [Brigham Young] Said I am the Presidet of the Twelve Apostles & the Lord has Never acknowledged any other man as the Presidet of the Twelve except myself ownly what was said about Thomas B. Marsh and it is the duty of the Twelve to know the mind and will of God Concerning them and their duties as much as for me to know it. Our wives were received into the order and Children.
