140 years ago today - Feb 20, 1884

[Heber J. Grant]

Evening called on Augusta Winters, asked her to be my wife and she consented. After parting with Augusta, my wife and I attended a party in the Social Hall. I feel thankful to my Heavenly Father that he has permitted me to win the affections of my wife and Augusta Winters also those of Emily Wells and I hope and pray for His aid and assistance that I may so live, in case we are married, that I may always return their love and full confidence. I consider that entering into plural marriage will be one of the most important steps of my life, and I earnestly hope for the assistance of my Heavenly Father in living as becomes a member of His Church.
