Lee, Lorenzo Snow, Franklin D. Richards, and John S. Fullmer, be a committee to collect and preserve said fund; and that Jedediah M. Grant take charge of the means in the eastern country, under the direction of the First Presidency. -- SLC Bowery (1)

[Brigham Young Sermon] ... President Young then remarked, that when the Twelve are abroad in any nation, they dictate the affairs of the Church there, the same as I do here. The enquiry may be made, can Lorenzo Snow dictate any where but in Italy? Yes--the Twelve dictate in all the world, and send Elders where they please, and as they deem wisdom. We have appointed Lorenzo and Erastus Snow, to certain missions, have they any right to go anywhere else? Yes; I wish they would open the door to every nation on the earth, and if an Apostle sees any one professing to be an Elder in the Church and bringing disgrace on the priesthood, he has authority to silence him, demand his license and cut him off from the Church.
