[Heber J. Grant]
At ten attended a meeting in the President's office of some of the leading men of the Church, and there was some talk on political matters. The feeling of all present was that it would be wise for our people to remain true to their political parties in the coming State election unless they felt to combine because of silver or some other item of this kind. None felt that it would be wise for us to have a nonpartisan party for a State ticket.
Personally I am in favor of Bro B H Roberts running as Representative to Congress and I hope sincerely that it is what will please the Presidency and that he will get the office.
