[John Henry Smith]

President Lorenzo Snow is 84 years of age today. A fast meeting was held by the Temple workers at nine a.m. and many bore testamony. A good spirit was present. At the close of the services, Bp. John R. Winder in behalf of the Temple Workers presented a beautifull boquet to Prest. L. Snow. He made a neat speach, to which Prest. L. Snow responded. The Bouquet was of white flowers. Three large lillies represented the first presidency. Twelve White Roses the Apostles. Seventy white cornelilans the Seventies, and a base of many white flowers representative of the great body of Saints. ...

Prest. Geo. Q. Cannon and I testified we had seen the Saviour at the Temple meeting this morning.
