135 years ago today - Mar 2, 1887

There was 122 persons got Endowments to day, & 28 Females & 45 men got Endowments for Me, total 73. This was in Commemoration of my 80th Birth day. I addressed them at the veil the first time I had spoken to any of the Saints in the Capacity of a Meeting for 26 Months Except one at St George.

I had Adopted to me the following Persons in the Temple: Calvin Stratton, 2 Gabrilla Stratton, 3 Martin Stratton, 4 Great Grand Mother in Law Stratton his wife, 5 Timothy Stratton Adopted to Wilford Woodruff & family.
