Lorenzo Snow, Aug 7, 1895

-- Aug 7, 1895
[Apostle Heber J. Grant Diary] [Meeting of Apostles, remarks of Lorenzo Snow] He felt with all his heart that Bro. Geo. Teasdale should be released as the President of the Mexican Mission and come home and labor with us among the different stakes. He respeted brother Teasdale but flet that he was not the proper man to preside in Mexico, and that his labors were needed in the different stakes. He related a dream which he had about Teasdale, Macdonald, and Eyring and from what he saw he feared trouble of a serious nature. He felt that hte affairs of the Mexican mission were in a very precarious condition, and it was his feeling that Anthony W. Ivins of Saint George should be called to preside there. ...

At 10 a.m. Lorenzo Snow, Franklin D. Richards, Brigham Young, F. M. Lyman, M. W. Merrill, Heber J. Grant, Abraham H. Cannon and myself met in Council. At 11 a.m. Prests. Wilford Woodruff, Geo. Q. Cannon, Joseph F. Smith and Geo. F. Gibbs joined.

It was unanimously decided to Release Elder Geo. Teasdale in Mexico and to make A. W. Ivins of St. George President of the Mexican Mission. I went with my wife, Sarah F. Smith, and Mrs. Edna L. Smith to Draperville where we had a crowded house and organized a club.

-- Oct 1, 1895
[Apostle Heber J. Grant Diary] At ten attended a meeting of the Apostles in the Temple. Pres[iden]t Lorenzo Snow, and apostles Richards, Young, Thatcher, Lyman, Smith, Teasdale, Grant, Merrill and Cannon were present. [Much on meat in Word of Wisdom.] After the remarks of Bro[ther] Brigham (Richards and Snow and been lengthy too) we adjourned for a couple of hours as it was suggested that too long meetings might wear brother Moses out. ... At the afternoon meeting Brother Moses was the first speaker. He said that these meetings of the twelve had always been a source of pleasure to him ... He believed that with Statehood financial prosperity would come to us, and that the heavy load that the First Presidency were now carrying would be lifted from their shoulders, and that we would soon have the church in a strong position financially. He desired sincerely that Pres[iden]t Snow and his brethren should forgive him for any neglect of his in the past, to have attended his quorum meetings. He might have felt that his poor health was more of an excuse in failing to be with us than he should. He felt that eventually his health would be restored to him. Closed his remarks by praying sincerely that we might all be kept in the straight and narrow path that leads to life eternal. (1)
