[David O. McKay diary]

[At the dedication of the Downey Ward Chapel:] At conclusion of the services hundreds came up for autographs, greeting, etc., Among them was a Methodist Minister who waited an hour to shake hands, and asked for my autograph. My pen had run dry, and he handed me his, saying, 'I shall always cherish this pen as being used by a distinguished gentleman.'

[David O. McKay Diary, as quoted in Minutes of the Apostles of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 1910-1951, Privately Published, Salt Lake City, Utah 2010]
