[J. Golden Kimball]
Attended the regular meeting of the Pres[iden]tcy, and Apostles in the Temple at 10.30 a.m. ... Pres[iden]t. Jos[eph]. F. Smith mentioned the name of his oldest son Hyrum M. Smith to fill the vacancy in the Quo[rum]. of Twelve. His recommendation was unanimously sustained, though the wisdom of this action at this time was questioned by some of the brethren. I also stated that Jos[eph]. F[ielding]. [Smith] Jr. was my favorite among Pres[iden]t. Smith's sons.
