[Heber J. Grant]

[In Oakland, California] The entertainment between the speeches was furnished by the hotel, and one of the features was the Hawaiian dance, which was certainly very disgusting to me. I felt almost tempted to leave the banquet, but I believe the majority of the people were equally as much disgusted as myself and therefore I concluded to stop until the banquet closed.
