135 years ago today - Mar 16, 1888

President Wilford Woodruff thought that as the Seventies have now over 100 quorums organized, it is time that they hold up and not select indiscriminately any and all but choose the best and most capable Elders in any and all the wards they visit. It was decided that the Presidents of the Seventy be instructed that it is inexpedient to continue further ordinations of other Seventies until otherwise instructed by the Twelve Apostles.
