[George Q. Cannon]

... we have learned that those of the Twelve against whom there are no indictments may go to Conference in safety. There are, at the present time, Bros. Lorenzo Snow, F. D. Richards, Heber J. Grant and John W. Taylor at liberty to go and come as they please. President Woodruff, Bros. Erastus Snow and John H. Smith have been restrained somewhat and have kept in seclusion, out of the way of deputies, as they have been threatened with arrest and have been sought for. It is now arranged that these three brethren shall have liberty to attend to Conference without danger. We look upon this as a great point gained and I would be delighted myself to have the same privilege; but myself, Bros, Jos. F. Smith, B. Young, M. Thatcher and F. M. Lyman are all in danger of arrest if we make our appearance. Bro. Woodruff has determined to go to Conference to-morrow afternoon. Bro. E. Snow is there to-day and spoke this morning to the people. Bro. John H. Smith has attended all of the meetings. I hope this will lead, in awhile, to all of us being permitted to go free on some terms.
