120 years ago today - Thursday, Feb 7, 1901

After some discussion it was shown to be the sense of the meeting that public funerals among our people be not held where death has resulted from diphtheria.

The question of getting out a cheap edition of the Book of Mormon was discussed. Apostle J. H. Smith reported that an edition of 10,000 copies could be contracted for in Kansas City at about 21 cents per copy. It would cost about 31 cents if published at home. Pres. Cannon favored having the work done at home, [even] if it were a little more expensive. Action was deferred until the manager of the Deseret News [was] consulted. [The RLDS church was selling the Book of Mormon for $.50 while the LDS church for $1.00]
