[Heber J. Grant]

[In apostles' meeting] Prest Woodruff said he would like to make a few remarks. Said it was the Kingdom of God or nothing with him. Did not care for any political party. I am for the Kingdom of God so also are my brethren of the Presidency and the Apostles. If we are united earth or hell cannot overthrow us, and we will prevail and the warfare against us shall not prevail. Believe I shall live to be with you at the dedication of the Temple. God bless you my brethren.

... I noticed tear came in Prest. Woodurff's eyes a time or two while the brethren were expressing their love for the Kingdom of God and their desire to know the wishes of the Presidency and determination to carry the same out even if it were in opposition to their own feelings. ...
