B. H. Roberts, senior Seventy's president and assistant church historian, writes a complaint about censorship. Heber J. Grant requires him to remove from the forthcoming volume of the History of the Church the statement of Brigham Young that Seventies are ordained apostles. "I desire, however, to take this occasion of disclaiming any responsibility for the mutilating of that very important part of President Young's Manuscript," Roberts writes, "and also to say, that while you had the physical power of eliminating that passage from the History, I do not believe you had any moral right to do so."
