120 years ago today - Thursday, Aug 8, 1901

Pres. Jos. F. Smith reported his attendance at the Summit Stake Conference. Enjoyed the spirit of the conference. While there, saw and talked with Brother W. W. Cluff, who was brooding over the recent changes in that stake. Wanted to know why he was released. The answer came that Summit was greatly in need of a change—and this was shown in part by the fact that a bishop [Samuel F. Atwood] of one of the wards [Kamas], who professed disbelief in the visitation of the Father and Son to the Prophet Jos. Smith, was retained in office some 20 years.
