Office of The First Presidency of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints

Salt Lake City, Utah, October 18th, 1899.


We heartily recommend to the Saints the Church Chronology recently issued from the press. As a work of reference on matters pertaining to the history of the Church, it is exceedingly valuable. And since the proceeds accruing from the sales are to be used towards the erection of a new Historian's Office and a fire-proof structure in which the valuable records and documents of the Church can find a safe home, Church Chronology ought to meet with universal favor throughout the entire community. We trust presiding officers and leading men in all the settlements of the Saints will place the matter before the people and take such steps as they may deem proper towards obtaining the popular sales advocated in the printed circulars previously forwarded.

Your Brethren, LORENZO SNOW, JOSEPH F. SMITH. {1899-October 18-Circular letter. Church Historian's Library,} (1)
