55 years ago today - Nov 23, 1966

[David O. McKay]

Clare [Middlemiss] came up to Huntsville with a folder full of correspondence which had accumulated for sometime now, and also with some forty cases of petitions for cancellation of Temple sealings. We went over these without any disturbance in two hours, and I was very happy that this work had been cleared away. There were one or two cases on the cancellations which were doubtful, so I allowed a second sealing for the woman, leaving to the next life and the Lord's decision which man the woman would have.
