Brother John M. Cannon as attorney for Elder Edward Stevenson, informed Presidents [Wilford] Woodruff and [Joseph F.] Smith that he had been instructed by Brother Stevenson to draw up a deed transferring to the Latter Day Saints' College of the Salt Lake Stake, a piece of land 80 x 100 feet, facing on First West and South Temple street. In answer to questions as to the feeling of Brother Stevenson's family concerning this donation, Brother Cannon said that the matter had been talked about for some time, and the family had finally become united in regard to the matter. President Woodruff sent word to Brother Stevenson that the Lord and the church would accept of his offering.
