Presidents Lorenzo Snow, George
Q. Cannon and Joseph F. Smith were at the office.
They received a call from Dr. Karl G. Maeser, general Superintendent of Church schools, and President Benjamin Cluff, of the Brigham Young Academy, who suggested that the students of that institution have the privilege of coming to Salt Lake City, to be favored with an address from the First Presidency.
It was decided, however, instead of having the students come here, that the Presidency visit the Academy at Provo [Utah], for the purpose mentioned, and the fifteenth proximo was named as the date of this appointment.
It was decided also, next Thursday being Thanksgiving day to postpone for one week the regular Thursday Council meeting. (1)
