[Apostle Heber J. Grant Diary] John Henry Smith suggested that Bro Snow write him a letter, as it was being circulated that it was the mind and will of the Lord that Frank J. Cannon be chosen to succeed himself as U.S. Senator. Bro Snow signed the [a] letter which I wrote out at the suggestion of Bro John Hy. Smith.

  1. JHS never was a US Senator!

  2. His journal entry is confusing. Frank J. Cannon was the current sitting U.S. senator for Utah and his term was about to expire. The election was underway to elect a new senator.

    The "himself" in the post is Frank J. Cannon.
