As I noted the exercises of the conference yesterday I wrote the names of the [First] Presidency as they were presented by Prest. [Joseph F.] Smith. He then presented the name of F[rancis] M. Lyman as prest. of the quorum of apostles & then to fill the vacancy caused by the death of Geo[rge] Teasdale presented my name. I was so overcome that I ceased to write. Immediately after conference adjourned I walked with the Presidency and quo- rum of Apostles to the Presidents Office and after instructing me in regard to my duties as a member of the quorum[,] the Twelve and Presidency and Twelve laid their hands on me and Prest. Smith ordained me a member of the quorum.
