[John Henry Smith]
I was sent for by President [of the Twelve] Lorenzo Snow to go to his room in the Temple.
He said he wanted me to run for U.S. Senator.
He also told me he would not take hold of affairs until after the funeral of Prest. Wilford Woodruff. He said he thought the church owed three millions of dollars. He also said he did not agree with Prest. Geo. Q. Cannon's business methods. He said the load seemed more than he could carry.
