[Apostle John Henry Smith Diary] Washington, D.C.
It rained all day. I got to see Mr. Jesse Overstreet and found him cold and stiff. Bp. H. B. Clawson and I went to the National Theatre in the evening. Primrose and Co. gave a good entertainment.
We mailed to President Lorenzo Snow all of the Resolutions introduced into the House of Representatives proposing to amend the Constitution of the United States in regard to Polygamy and Polygamous Cohabitation. jhsd

John Nuttall was made a director in the place of Nephi W. Clayton, resigned, William G. McMillan was elected secretary and treasurer in place of Isaac Clayton, resigned.
Attorney Franklin S. Richards had a talk with the Presidency and set forth the schemes of a man named Lamson, who is endeavoring to appropriate Utah Lake waters belonging to the city, which will involve a lawsuit. The object of Attorney Richards was to get the Presidency to see the injustice of Lamson's scheme and get the Deseret News to defend the interests of the city in the impending suit.

[Apostle Marriner W. Merrill Diary] Tuesday. Richmond. I received word from President Snow to be in Salt Lake City tomorrow to attend an important meeting with the First Presidency at 10 a. m. I left by buggy for Logan at 10 a. m. after arranging for putting up some stoves in my new house on Meadow Farm ready for my family when they come from Franklin on Thursday, February 22nd, 1900. It snowed hard this morning. On arriving in Logan and before I left for Salt Lake I bought 50 yards of homemade carpet from the Tithing Office to be sent to my new house on Meadow Farm, Richmond, for $23.80 coupons (50c for 26 yards and 45c for 24 yards). merrill
