President Wilford Woodruff asks Apostle Brigham Young Jr., "Woodruff asked me, "what is your opinion about bro[ther] B. H.] Roberts?" Young answers, "He has passed beyond our help the Lord must handle him." Young writes later, "I found the Presidency felt about the same way." Roberts had been temporarily dropped from the First Quorum of Seventy and suspended from exercising his priesthood and given three weeks to agree to sign the Political Manifesto which states that all church leaders must get permission from above before seeking political office.
