[Apostle John Henry Smith Diary] Salt Lake City
President Wilford Woodruffs talk yesterday in Conference has created a sensation in this City.
My son George is very poorly.
The following named brethren met in the Apostles room in the Temple at 2 p.m.: Wilford Woodruff, Geo. Q. Cannon, Joseph F. Smith, Lorenzo Snow, Franklin D. Richards, Brigham Young, Francis M. Lyman,
John Henry Smith, Geo. Teasdale, John W. Taylor, Marriner W. Merrill, Anthon H. Lurid, Matthias F. Cowley, Abraham O. Woodruff, and Geo. F. Gibbs as Clerk. Prests. Woodruff, Cannon, and Smith, also Young and Lyman gave some good advice and a charge to our incoming brethren.
Prest. Geo. Q. Cannon was mouth in ordaining Matthias F. Cowley. Prest. Wilford Woodruff was mouth in ordaining his son Abraham O. Woodruff. All of the Presidency and Twelve except Bro. Heber J. Grant had their hands on these brethren's heads. (1)
At meeting of all the apostles except Grant and Merill, Pres. Snow let out on Adam being our father and God. How beautiful the thought - it brot [sic] God nearer to us. Bro Franklin [D. Richards] said it made him thrill through his whole body - it was new & it was inspiring. I followed. (2)
