[Apostle Rudger Clawson Diary] Salt Lake City. Clear and hot. 10 a.m. Fast meeting at the temple, Pres. Snow presiding.

Pres. Lorenzo Snow. Topics treated. When we get to heaven we will ask ourselves, how has it been with us while on earth? Are we better today, are we stronger today, than we were a month ago? Where we have been at fault, we should endeavor to correct the same in the future. It is a great pleasure to be a Latter-day Saint. We should feel happy and satisfied. When he was in the "Pen," he said, he was made cheerful and happy by trying to make others happy.

Pres. Snow said in part: one of the most difficult improvements the Latter-day Saints have to make is in relation to a monetary consideration. "Property we haven't got, we are striving improperly to get, and property we have, we are striving improperly to keep." Said that there have been rich men among us in times past who haven't paid one third of their tithing, and others who have paid none at all, but it is getting to be different now. There is a brother in Provo who sent in the other day $27,000 for tithing, and this same brother has given by donation to the church as high as $10,000. There is a sister in this meeting, who has contributed to the church for educational purposes something like $23,000. And such things may be said of the man at my right (Apostle H. J. Grant) and of the man at my left (Bp. J. R. Winder). There is a great improvement among the Latter-day Saints in tithe-paying, and I rejoice in it. (2)
