Thomas B. Marsh, former president of original Twelve, is received back into the church years after his apostasy. Brigham Young publicly compares himself physically to the ailing Marsh: "He has told you that he is an old man. Do you think that I am an old man? I could prove to this congregation that I am young; for I could find more girls who would choose me for a husband than can any of the young men. . . . . 'Mormonism' keeps men and women young and handsome; and when they are full of the Spirit of God, there are none of them but what will have a glow upon their countenances; and that is what makes yea and me young; for the Spirit of God is with us and within us."
