145 years ago today - Oct 11, 1876

[Apostle Wilford Woodruff]

11 Oct 1876 I spent this day in the Endowment House. Brother Samuel H. B. Smith Baptized this day Persons 1,207 times for the dead, the most ever Baptized in this last dispensation in one day by one man, and probably the most Ever Baptized since the world began in one day by one man.
