Apostle Erastus Snow writes that he "could not conscientiously, and in justice to the cause we are engaged in, refuse to Brother [Orson] Pratt [Jr.] the liberty to withdraw from the [High] Council as Brother Pratt's statements of his views, doubting as he does, the divinity of the calling of the Prophet Joseph Smith and the consequent building up of the Church" Orson Pratt Jr. had asked to be released but Erastus Snow had been trying to talk him out of it.
