Lorenzo Snow, Jan 11, 1893

-- Jan 11, 1893
[Apostle Marriner W. Merrill Diary] We met at 10 a. m. Brother Lund was mouth in prayer. Several talked, and I talked 15 minutes. President Snow referred to Moses Thatcher's recent course in not being in harmony with the First Presidency. Then Moses talked and was much agitated and affected and felt humble. At 1 p. m. President Cannon came in and it was decided that the Quorum meet with the First Presidency tomorrow at 11 a. m. and talk over and adjust the feelings with Brother Thatcher and First Presidency. It was also decided to meet again as a Quorum on Tuesday, March 21st, in the Salt Lake Temple in a room set apart for the Twelve. It was decided that the Twelve furnish their own room, which would probably cost $2,000.00. The Twelve then went to the Temple and viewed it all through. I then came to my room tired and sick after fasting all day. (1)
