[Brigham Young Jr.]

Pres[iden]t Woodruff proposed a first presidency which was not received with favor by younger members. In my turn to speak presented the necessity of the Quorum being one previous to consideration of said subject. I knew there existed much ill feeling towards Bro[ther] Cannon by younger members of quorum. Investigation of charges began Bro[ther]s M. Thatcher, F. M. Lyman, Jno. H. S. & H. J. Grant and a little by E. Snow. Much valuable time is wasted in these comparatively groundless charges and their generally successful refutation. I tremble for the future if we continue these unrighteous proceedings. It seems that we do not forgive each other when difficulties are apparently settled.
