[Brigham Young Jr.]
Bro[ther] Moses T[hatcher]. called upon Pres[iden]ts [George Q.] C[annon] & [Joseph F.] S[mith]. were present. Bro[ther]. M[oses]. talked as he did to me quite set in his opinions that he was illy used by Pres[idency]. & Twelve. He could see how the Pres[idency]. can dictate to him or anyone else in political matters in which I think he is right, but how Bro[ther]. M[oses]. T[hatcher]. can throw down the responsibilities of his priesthood and pick up politics without consulting the authority under which he has covenanted to labor is beyond my comprehension. He throws away the Priesthood & hugs politics, rendering fealty to the world at the same time inconstant to his former vows.
