[Franklin D. Richards]

Pres[iden]t WW [Wilford Woodruff] Stated that Pres[iden]t Cannon will be absent for a while & he wished us to consider some important matters--it being represented that [former apostle] Moses Thatcher would try hard to get elected Senator. It appearing impracticable to run GQC [George Q. Cannon] or any other churchman for Senator it seemed favorable to give our support to [non-Mormon] Judge P.H. Henderson. We must prevent MT [Moses Thatcher] election if possible.
