[Marion G. Romney]

... Of course, President Grant is not well physically and he is not as vigorous as he has been, but he is still the president and the Lord's spokesman on the earth. ... President Clark probably has as great a load to carry as any man in the Church ever had, as he must supply the vigorous leadership to the Church when he is only a counselor. His appointment to the presidency of the Church to me is one of the greatest evidences that I have ever seen of the divinity of the Church and that God chooses the men for high places in the Church. President McKay also is a powerful man, but of an entirely different type. He and President Clark certainly are a balanced pair of counselors.
