[John Henry Smith]
... were in Councill for an hour with Bro. W.[ilford] Woodruff, B.[righam] Young, F.[rancis] M. Lyman, George Teasdale and myself. The question was asked by Daniel Tyler, Can a man attain to the Godhead without his entering into the practice of celestial marriage [plural marriage] in this life or [was] the sealing [marriage] of one wife [sufficient]. We came to the unanimous conclusion that he could not. All men must obey the law or leave the result with the Lord.
