Apostle Lorenzo Snow says that in the future "brothers and sisters would marry each other in this church. All our horror at such a union was due entirely to prejudice, and the offspring of such unions would be as healthy and pure as any other. These were the decided views of President Young, when alive, for Bother Snow talked to him freely on this matter." (1)

Epistle to Saints in Semi-Annual Conference-- It will be noted that the General Conference of the L.D.S. Church in which this Epistle was read was held in Coalville, Summit County, Utah. Salt Lake City was the normal site of these Conferences but during the troubled years of 1885, 1886 and 1887 the Conferences were held elsewhere with two being held in Logan, Utah, two in Provo, Utah, and this one in Coalville.

... President Woodruff and the members of the Council of the Twelve Apostles still continue in the active performance of the duties appertaining to their Priesthood and calling, occasionally hampered, it may be, in certain directions by the unrelenting attacks of our persecutors. Almost without exception they have enjoyed good health, while the more aged ones, including Elder Lorenzo Snow, in prison, have been blessed with a vigor and with powers of endurance remarkable for men of their years. Brother Lorenzo Snow bears his unjust imprisonment with much fortitude and patience and is a source of great comfort and strength to his fellow-prisoners, deprived of liberty for their obedience to the requirements of God's law. ...
