[Brigham Young Jr.]
Wrote A[ngus]. M. Cannon stated I thought the first wives should join the plural wives, who were thrown out by the cursed laws of the U.S.A. Congress, and force their husbands to keep the law where they had promised to obey us. I believe the women should all band together and reject the secular and cling to the eternal laws of God. What right has a first wife to enjoy all the blessings when her sisters who have suffered and ventured as much as she, are wickedly thrust out from all rights of wives & mothers given them of their Father who is in heaven.
