Pres. Snow made remarks and said in substance that he doubted whether we were justified in keeping the Twelve Apostles and Seven Presidents of Seventies at home as much as we do. Their special calling is to preach the gospel to the nations, and he felt that a great work must be accomplished in this regard before the coming of the Savior. The president of the Twelve should think about this matter, should pray about it, that his mind might be broadened to comprehend what is needed. It is a matter worthy of thought and consideration.
