[Heber J. Grant]

I called on Prest Cannon this morning at the Gardo and unburdened my to him, telling him of my wife's suffering and my own heart aches. He told me that I should be blessed and comforted of the Lord and that the Lord would aid me in assisting Gusta to feel better. I could not keep from crying while I was chatting with Prest Cannon. I confessed to him that I felt that perhaps it was just that I should suffer as I was suffering as I had made him and other suffer by misjudging them and their actions. As we were parting he put his arm around me and kissed me and I felt that all ill feeling that I might have engendered in his heart because of my criticisms of his actions after the death of Prest Taylor was a thing of the past. This afternoon I took Gusta's girl Mary for a ride. Called for a minute to see Emily. I called and saw Gusta again and found her feeling very much better than she was last night and I do not know how to be thankful enough for the change in her feelings ...
