[Heber J. Grant]

Prest Taylor put his arm on my shoulder just as I was leaving and blessed me said I should be prospered in my financial matters if I continued to labor desiring the advancement of God's Kingdom. Said he felt that I had been blessed in my labors in disposing of the Church's stock, in such a short time. He said many encouraging things to me. In fact his remarks were more encouraging than any I have ever had from him since I entered the Quorum. Many times I have wondered if he did not lack confidence in me he seemed generally so cold and distant in comparison to Bros Lyman, Jno Hy & Jos F Smith & some of my other brethren. I feel truly thankful to have such encouraging remarks from the President and with God's help I shall try to so order my life that my brethren presiding over me shall feel to approve of my labors.
