[Apostle Brigham Young Jr.]
[In company of H. J. Grant] Our conversation during the entire day was of the most interesting character. He said I & [Francis M.] Lyman & Jno. H[enry] S[mith] have decided in our own minds that Jos[eph] F. S[mith] should be placed ahead of you in the Quorum. He thinks that, tho' a man may be ordained an apostle he takes rank when he comes into the Quorum. My answer was I am willing to be anything or stand anywhere, I never did think I was good enough to be an apostle. I brought my position--where he had place me--before father for I was sure some of the Twelve were dissatisfied about it. He said "It is just right as it is."
