[Apostle Heber J. Grant Diary] [After Articles of Faith read] Bishop Orson F. Whitney then read the Manifesto of Prest. Woodruff. Prest. Lorenzo Snow then read a motion that we approve of the action of Prest. Woodruff in issuing the Manifesto. Some did not hear the motion and it was read a second time by brother Whitney and the presented by Pres[iden]t Cannon and unanimously sustained by the people ... Pres[iden]t Woodruff among other things said that no man at the head of the Church would ever be permitted to lead the people astray. He said that were he to attempt any such thing the Lord would remove him out of his place ... The meeting this morning is one of the most important that has ever happened in the Church and there were many wet eyes in the congregation when the vote was called to sustain the action of Pres[iden]t Woodruff in his issuing the Manifesto. There were some of the people that did not vote. There were not many as I noticed that the votes was as large if not large than that which had been given to the authorities when they were sustained.
