Pres[iden]t. Lyman remarked that the Twelve had been considering the case of Bro[ther]. [Judson] Tolman who had been deprived of his priesthood because he had performed unauthorized, illegal marriages, and had also entered into one himself. His family feel very bad about what has happened, and are pressing very much to have his priesthood restored to him. Bro[ther]. Lyman said that he reminded them that Bro[ther]. Tolman had not only acted without authority for others, but had married a woman himself since President Smith's declaration, and that personally he could not feel to put the seal of approval on what Bro[ther]. Tolman had done by restoring to him his priesthood, and it was very probable therefore that this could not be done during the lifetime of Bro[ther]. Tolman.

President Smith endorsed the position taken by Pres[iden]t. Lyman in regard to this matter. ...
