[George Q. Cannon]

Brother [Joseph F.] Smith left this morning at four o'clock. Bro. Wilcken called for him and took him to his home to see his children, whom he had not seen [since Sept. 1884]. It being election day, it was thought that it might be safe for him to visit his home, as the deputy marshals would be so engaged with election matters that they would not have leisure to spy around. ... In the evening Bro. Smith returned.
