[Wilford Woodruff]

28 I got Telegram that Presidet Young was vary low. I gathered to gether some 100 Elders & 30 women & we went into the Temple and Clothed ourselves in the Temple Clothing and formed our prayer Circles and Prayed through the day and night untill 2 oclok in the Morning when we all assembled together & had prayers together and Expressed our feelings upon the Situation of Presidet Young [who's health was rapidly declining]. We then adjourned untill 7 oclok.
