[John Wolley]

Some months ago I met [apostle] Mat[t]hias F. Cowley on the street and he asked me if I was familiar with the Sealing Ceremony. I told him I was. He said: If any good man come to you don't turn them down. I believed from that statement that it was still proper that plural marriages be solemnized, and that President [Joseph F.] Smith had authorized Cowley to instruct me. Since that time I have married wives to [a number of men are listed].
