President [Lorenzo] Snow was feeling somewhat better this morning and was at the office, also President [Joseph F.] Smith. A letter from President [George Q.]
Cannon dated December 17th was received today. President Cannon referring to the meeting held the day before (Dec[ember]. 16) in Honolulu [Hawaii], stated that seldom had he felt more of the spirit of the Lord while speaking then on that occasion to the people, and that he was reminded of old times. By invitation from the ex-queen, Liliukalani, he called upon that lady who received him very graciously. She spoke very warmly of the good effects of his visit to the islands and to the people whom she said were full of love towards him on account of his having brought the Gospel to them. On arising to depart she requested him to bless her and led him into a private room, and, before he was aware, she had knelt at his feet, to receive a blessing. He blessed her very freely and the spirit rested upon them both.
