[Wilford Woodruff]

I Called into the Presidents Office in the morning & Presidents Heber C. Kimball was teaching doctrin. He said that wom[e/a?]n told him that He had no right to controll a woman because He was not a woman. He said that He Contained the principle of both the men and the women for both male & female proceded from him. He said many thought that the seat of life or the soul or mind of man was in the heart others in the brain. But whareever the seed of life was located there was the seat of life & the foundation of the soul. Many other remarks were made.

He said any man that was a prophet of God He was born a Natural Prophet. It was through a linage of Prophets. There fathers & mothers were Prophets & Prophetesses by birth through the Seed of Abraham. This was the case With Joseph Brigham & himself. [Their?] Fathers were prophets.

He then Chastized Thomas Ellerback in a vary sharp manner for insulting him & trying to take a Course to bring a Collission between him & Daniel H. Wells.
