[Apostle John Henry Smith Diary] Salt Lake City
Lorenzo Snow, Heber J. Grant and I called at Brigham Young's home. We had a long talk over the financial condition of the Church. We also determined to insist that under existing conditions that the Councilors of the President must consult the apostles on leading questions. (1)

[Apostle Brigham Young Jr. Diary] [Quorum of 12 met at 10 a.m. President Snow called on Brother Woodruff and then Brother Taylor.] Then Pres[ident] Snow spoke on condition of first presidency followed by Bro[ther] Teasdale (who was in favor of our minding our own business) Jno H. S., B.Y. & F. D. R. we all had complaints to make I wanted a T in T appointed to release Pres[ident] W. and for the First Presidency to correct all mistakes especially Pres[ident] Cannon so that he would not be humiliated when the first Quorum was dissolved, Jno Q. C. & Frank C. would be relieved as soon as the Twelve managed matters. Bro[ther] Richards did not agree with me I related a dream about relief coming to Pres[ident] W. [met again in the afternoon and continued the discussion.] (2)
