[Francis M. Lyman] [Escalante conference with President Crosby] I then occupied the remainder of the time. Spoke upon tithing and offerings, upon faith, repentance and baptism. I then spoke upon Statehood and told the people the keynote is in favor of Statehood and no one should oppose it. Remarked upon the advantages of Statehood and announced it as the will of the Lord that we should accept of Statehood upon the terms that we can get. (1)

[Francis M. Lyman] [Orderville] Also upon fast meetings and offerings. Also upon tithing. Then upon statehood ... Mr. Glassman came to Kanab from St. George this evening. At 8:30 P.M. he spoke up Republicanism to a large gathering. He made some very good points but talks rather low. Yet he is animated and apt in making happy hits. (1)

[Francis M. Lyman] [Provo] At 7:30 P.M. Bro[ther] Brigham Young and I met with the High Council at the Provo tithing office when bro[ther] S. S. Jones application for baptism was heard and considered. He did not seem to come with a broken heart and a contrite spirit ans he should do. Bro[ther] Brigham plainly spoke of his of humility which we all endorsed. All talked on the case ... The case was continued till next regular meeting of the council when it will be taken up again and if there then appears the proper humility he may be allowed to be baptized. (1)
