Brother Isaac Smith [counselor in the Cache Stake presidency] stated that when the vote was taken to release Elders Aaron Farr and Seth Langton from the High Council, because of their voting against the [political] Declaration, two others of that Council had voted against their release. He wished to know whether they should be released also. Presidents Cannon and [Joseph F.] Smith and Elder F[rancis]. M. Lyman who was present, concurred in the advice that they should not be dealt with in that manner, in view of the feelings entertained by many people in the Cache Valley Stake.
