[Seymour B. Young]

Pres[ident] [Lorenzo] Snow spoke about doing away with the killing of animals for food and informed me on my way home that I would live to hear those teachings from the general authorities of the Church to be observed by the whole people for said he how can the enmity cease between man and beasts so long as man consitutues [continues] to constitute himself their enemy by slaying them for food or sport every chance he may get to do so. He further informed me that it was known that our Lord and Savior had wives while he lived in the flesh and that they bore him posterity and that the descendants of these children were among the leading prophets and apostles of the Church and were also the great rulers of the greatest nations of the globe. This is wonderfull doctrine to me revealed by a servant of God and I accept it & receive it with all my heart.
