[Wilford Woodruff]

I met with G. A. Smith & others at the Endowment House and gave {Silas Sanford Smith} his second anointing. W Woodruff officiated. Brother Pace opened by Prayer. Joseph W. Young was mouth, & R. L. Campbell Closed. {George Watt & 3 wives} received his second Anointing at the Endowment House. John {Taylor} officiated.

G A. Smith Conversed with Presidet Young & he told him to take any of the persons on the list to anoint when others notifyed did not Come.

Presidet Young Addressed the Assembly in an interesting manner. He was opposed to Commenceing parties so late & Continuing them so late an hour. It was following the Custom of the Gentile & Evil would grow out of it. The people should open their party by Prayer By 5 oclok & Close [By?] 12 oclok.
