[Brigham Young Jr.]

... Pres[iden]t Cannon presented change cash a/c [account] from B[isho]p. to Pres[iden]t. Church carried unanimously. Abrogate all salar[is]s paid to Church officials, carried unanimously. If apostles & others must be helped should be done as they need up to present limit, anything over requires special order of First Presidency. Thank God these questions are settled. Pres[iden]t. Woodruff blessed the brethren for being unanimous in righting wrong returning to proper method of managing Church business. Sacrament administered and we rejoiced before the Lord. ...

After meeting proposed to Cannon that the First Presidency & Twelve obtain a farm and operate it on the principle of United Order. My mind opens to visions of Presidents of Stakes High Councils B[isho]p. Etc. gradually'unsolicited'following our example, Coming to us for Council and thus a core of men and women who have received, through their faithfulness, all the blessings in the House of the Lord being prepared to inhabit and build up the Center stake of Zion in Jackson Co[unty], Miss[ouri].
