145 years ago today - Apr 4, 1877 (Morning)

Pres. Brigham Young arose and explained in regard to the Order of the Priesthood, and designated what officers should sit in the different stands on the east and west ends of the main room of the Temple. He congratulated those present on their being in a Holy Temple, erected to the name of the Most High God, in which to worship and to attend to saving ordinances for the living and the dead, a privilege he said, enjoyed by no other people that we have any account of, since the days of Enoch. -- St. George, Utah
