[Franklin D. Richards]

Later the First Presidency arrived & the question was asked if a man can be severed from the Priesthood after having been ordained an Apostle without being cut off from the Church. Some thought he could, & some that he could not. After J[oseph]. F. S[mith]. H[eber]. J. G[rant]., B[righam]. Y[oung]. [Jr.] F[ranklin]. D. R[ichards]., (J[oseph]. F. S[mith]. again) F[rancis]. M. Lyman G[eorge]. Q. C[annon]. summed up If M[oses].T[hatcher]. If restored how, by vote or ordination. Pres[iden]t [Wilford] Woodruff said if he was cut off from the Priesthood, he would have to be ordained again.
