120 years ago today - Thursday, Dec 12, 1901

The clerk read a letter from ex-bishop Saml. F. Atwood of Kamas, in which he claimed that he had been misrepresented to Pres. Jos. F. Smith. One of the charges was that he had expressed disbelief in the visitation of the Father and Son to Joseph Smith, the prophet, and this, he said, was false. He denied the allegation. Pres. Smith remarked that he had been credibly informed that Bishop Atwood had made this remark, namely, that "God Almighty had bigger business to attend to than to visit the boy Joseph." However, the letter was referred to Pres. Moses Taylor of the Summit Stake for investigation and such proper action as may be necessary.
