[Brigham Young Jr.]

Presidency and some of the Twelve & old timers went to Farmington [Utah] to bury remains of Lot Smith bro[ugh]t. from Moen Copy[.] Lot was lauded in churches to the skies. A greater heart no man had, but was the [most] violent man I ever associated with. The good was far in excess of the bad in Lot Smith.

[Brigham Young Jr., Diary, as quoted in Minutes of the Apostles of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 1835-1951, Electronic Edition, 2015]
