175 years ago today - Aug 9, 1846
Brigham Young tells a general meeting that certain apostles are wrong in saying that marriage sealings will occur "in the wilderness." He insists that sealings cannot occur until another temple is built, though a week previously he secretly sealed three plural wives to Wilford Woodruff at the camp. Brigham Young writes to President James K. Polk, "We will go so far that our enemies will not choose to follow us and we will pick so unpromising a place that nobody will covet it."
