[Judson Tolman speaking:] I suppose I am the one who is more to blame than anyone. Brother [Marriner Wood] Merrill came to me in the first place and said he wanted me to marry this girl and I told him what Brother [Joseph H.] Grant had said and he said that was alright. ... Tolman: As I have told you before, Brother Merrill married me and the children of this woman were sealed to me in the Salt Lake Temple after I had spoken to Brother Madsen who consulted with President [John R.] Winder. Brothers Grant and Stoker advised me not to tell my first wife that I had married the Williams woman as I might cause trouble. ...
