[Wilford Woodruff] With Orson Hyde and Lorenzo Snow, offers to resign apostleship; Brigham Young declines (1)

-- Dec 30, 1856
[Brigham Young Sermon] Among the remarks made by President Young, He said when the first Twelve were called he and Brother Kimball almost needed a stool in order to reach high enough to tie the shoes of John Boynton, Lyman Johnson and Wm. E. McLellin, but now they are gone and we remain. Brother Woodruff and Lorenzo Snow say that they never have felt the weight of their Apostleship and responsibility as they do now; this I have known all the time. If Brother Orson Hyde feels the weight of his responsibility as an Apostle today I am glad of it for it is the first day of his life that he ever did feel it. -- SLC Social Hall [Wilford Woodruff's Journal. 9 Vols. Scott G. Kenney, ed. Salt Lake City: Signature Books, 1983-85. 4:524] (2)
