[J. Reuben Clark]

I checked with the brethren and found that they were following up the new "polygamists," and were taking up the matter with the bishops in whose wards the "polygamists" reside. ...

[During a meeting of the First Presidency regarding the Deseret News:] President Grant was very emphatic here, as he had been at the meeting with x against Hafen's paintings, and standing for the modern art. ...

Annie Wells Cannon: Annie Wells Cannon came in to see me regarding the effort of th publishers of "Truth," the new "polygamists" journal, to get the library to buy a subscription at $2 a year. She said she told Miss Sprague she would like to look into it and make a report to Miss Sprague. Sister Cannon said she did not wish to have the journal in the library.

I told her that I thought she had a perfect support for her position in the fact that it is published by a group who are violating the laws of the State and the Constitution of the State, and by a group who are publicly advocating the violation of the laws of the State and of the Constitution.
