165 years ago today - Jan 23, 1859

[Wilford Woodruff]

I asked President Young If Robert Scholes & Susan C. Woodruff my second daughter might be married. He had no objections to it.

<He asked me about Phebe. I told him all about her. He remembers her and said how if he had any wish to take any more he said we should be pressed for an [offer?].>

I met with the Quorum of the Twelve for Prayer. ... In speaking of the Deserett Alphabet they thought we would have to Continue the English Books as well as the Deserett Alphabet as we could not print but few Books in the Deseret Alphabet.

[Note the angled brackets represent text coded in shorthand. This reference is probably to Wilford's 16-year old daughter Phebe as a potential wife to Brigham Young.]
