[J. Golden Kimball]
[Just demoted, former apostle] Bro[ther]. Moses Thatcher was on the train. As we reached Salt Lake City, Bro[ther] Thatcher said he wished to talk to me a few moments. He said, I am now a lay member in the Church but I have no feelings against any man that lives, and I desire to remain in the church, live my religion and teach my children to do the same' He then explained that he heard that he had hurt my feelings. I acknoweldged he had, and he asked my pardon, for which I readily granted. He then said: 'Golden you will live to see me vindicated.' Reached home feeling weighed down with sorrow, I was blue and dispondent beyond description.
