[Francis M. Lyman]

During our dinner the Twelve met informally for the first time all together in our room in the [Salt Lake] Temple. We took our seats in our order. [In the prayer circle:] We laid our hands on bro[ther] Thatcher and bro[ther] [Franklin D.] Richards was mouth in blessing him. That was the first blessing or prayer ever offered in our room.
