[George Q. Cannon]
A plate has been prepared, which Brother McKenzie has engraved, and was submitted to this meeting for examination, it being the intention to place it with other articles in the cap-stone of the Temple. The following is a copy of the engraving:
HOLINESS TO THE LORD.
THE TEMPLE BLOCK CONSECRATED AND GROUND BROKEN FOR THE
FOUNDATION OF THIS TEMPLE, FEBRUARY 14TH, 1853.
THE CORNER STONES WERE LAID APRIL 6TH, 1853, COMMENCING
AT THE SOUTHEAST CORNER.
GENERAL CHURCH AUTHORITIES:
April 6, 1853.
[Members of each quorum of general authorities are listed] ...
T. O. Angell, Jos. D. C. Young, Architects.
THE CAPSTONE WAS LAID APRIL 6TH, 1892, BY PRESIDENT
At this meeting also the question of the ceremonies in connection with the laying the cap-stone was considered. A committee, consisting of Brothers J. H. Smith, H. J. Grant , J. W. Taylor and A. H. Lund, was appointed to inspect the scaffolding and platforms which had been erected on the Temple towers, as it is the design to have the leading brethren go up on to these platforms during the laying of the cap-stone....
I have felt for a long period that the First Presidency of the Church were not honored and respected as they ought to be, and that even men high in authority fail to give that deference that is due to the First Presidency. ... I asserted the authority of the First Presidency and our right to speak to the people, and to counsel the Twelve and every other man in the Church.
