[Apostle Abraham Owen Woodruff]
Am in to the fight for my candidate. Made a good showing. He got 18 votes when 19 were necessary to nominate.
Had a meeting with Mr. [Thomas] Kearns. He pledge[d] his honor to have the Constitutional amendment blocked. Said he would defend me in trouble with his own life.
