[George Albert Smith]
President Grant said his mind had not yet centered on anyone to fill the vacancy caused by the death of Brother Hyrum G. Smith [presiding patriarch].
The question was discussed as to whether or not Hyrum G. Smith's oldest son is entitled to this position according to the revelations of the Lord on this subject.
No conclusion was reached. Met with brethren in temple Primary and Emily & Vilate Raile discussed. My nerves very much unstrung.
