-- Dec 26, 1900
President [Lorenzo] Snow was feeling somewhat better this morning and was at the office, also President [Joseph F.] Smith. A letter from President [George Q.] Cannon dated December 17th was received today. President Cannon referring to the meeting held the day before (Dec[ember]. 16) in Honolulu [Hawaii], stated that seldom had he felt more of the spirit of the Lord while speaking then on that occasion to the people, and that he was reminded of old times. By invitation from the ex- queen, Liliukalani, he called upon that lady who received him very graciously. She spoke very warmly of the good effects of his visit to the islands and to the people whom she said were full of love towards him on account of his having brought the Gospel to them. On arising to depart she requested him to bless her and led him into a private room, and, before he was aware, she had knelt at his feet, to receive a blessing. He blessed her very freely and the spirit rested upon them both. [December 27, 1900; Journal History; Brigham Young Jr., Diary] President [Lorenzo] Snow was feeling a little better this morning. At 11 o'clock the council meeting of the Presidency and the Apostles was held in the Temple. There were present Presidents Snow and [Joseph F.] Smith and Elders Brigham Young [Jr.], John Henry Smith, George Teasdale, Heber J. Grant, John W. Taylor, Anthon H. Lund, Abraham O[wen]. Woodruff, Rudger Clawson and Reed Smoot. ... President Lorenzo Snow represented the idea of reconstructing the Tabernacle organ and stated the condition that the organ was in. He said that the Kimball Company would reconstruct it and add all the modern improvements required for $12,000. The matter was discussed and the decision made that the organ should be reconstructed. ... Pres[ident]. [Lorenzo] Snow too ill to go out. Met in office. Question of sending "Mormon" to Senate. I am decidedly in favor of it. Gentiles have one senator & Repre[sentative]. we must have a representative--Senator. Pres[ident]. Snow thoroughly worn out. He took me into his room and we conversed a little but I soon left him. (2)
