[Apostle Rudger Clawson Diary]

Apostle H. J. Grant spoke of the prejudice that is being worked up by the Salt Lake Tribune against the Church. Didn't look upon it as being very serious. Said that Pres. Richard[s]'s prediction with reference to his getting out of debt is being rapidly fulfilled. Thought he would be out of debt in about 18 months, whereas it looked sometime ago as if it would take at least 10 years...

Apostle Merrill ... Predicted that the time would never be in this Church when children from plural marriages will not be born. Said he believed that the First Presidency had a right to counsel him in all things, both spiritual and temporal....

Apostle Cowley ... said he felt in his heart that the day is not far distant when the Lord will clean out Jackson County and open up the way for the redemption of Zion.
