[Brigham Young Jr.]

Met with Council in Temple. Seventies' Presidents were called in Pres[iden]t. [George Q.] Cannon made a few opening remarks told B. H. Roberts what was expected of him[;] read from D[octrine]. & C[ovenants]. p. 240 & page 220. Bro[other] R[oberts]. placed himself in the hands of Brethren, he broke down entirely and all eyes were wet. He satisfied us all and fulfilled my request he prayed for himself and did come to us with a broken heart & contrite spirit. We rejoiced in the lord and wept over the return of the stray sheep. Bro[ther] R[oberts]. was humble and wept for himself as we had an a previous occasion wept for him which then affected him not.
