110 years ago today - Oct 6, 1912

His [i.e., Charles W. Penrose's] remarks were in answer to those made by bro[ther]. B. H. Roberts yesterday, and they were a complete refutation of his statements and a vindication of the stand the Church occupies. I don't know that I ever heard a man receive such a call down as did bro[ther] Roberts and those brethren who have been carried away by the foolish [Theodore] Roosevelt sentiment that is weeping over the country, which if followed out would lead to a final disruption of the Constitution. ... The speakers [in the afternoon session] were Elders Geo[rge] A Smith, Jos[eph]. F[ielding].

Smith Jr and James E. Talmage the latter delivering one of his characteristic sermons in which he also answers bro[ther] Roberts.
