[Apostle John Henry Smith Diary] Salt Lake City
The Council of the Twelve apostles met yesterday as a separate Quorum from the first Presidency for the first time in many years. There were present Lorenzo Snow, F. D. Richards, Moses Thatcher, Francis M. Lyman, John Henry Smith, Heber J. Grant, John W. Taylor, Marriner W. Merrill, Anton H. Lund, Abraham H. Cannon and John W. Young. We were together about 10 hours. We all spoke in turn confessing our sins and expressing our determination to live nearer the Lord in the future. We administered the Sacrament after the early order, eating our fill of bread and drinking the wine. (1)

[Apostle Heber J. Grant Diary] [Apostles meeting called by Lorenzo Snow to achieve perfect unity.] Moses Thatcher felt that it was a good thing to be here. He felt that the Lord was with us. I have been filled with solemn thoughts since Pres[iden]t Snow was moved upon to call us together. The hope of our becoming one has given me more joy than anything I can think of. If we can become as one it will be a glorious thing. The First Presidency are one and if we can become one and then become one with the First Presidency it will be the beginning of the establishment of the Kingdom of God, preparatory for the coming of our Lord and Master Jesus Christ ... I do not believe that there are any of us who seek occasion against each other. I pray God to bless us while we are together. (5)
