[President George Albert Smith Journal] "About six in the evening Arthur brought Ernest L. Wilkinson up to see me, and after visiting for a short time Arthur went home and Brother Wilkinson had dinner with us. I talked to him about the B.Y.U. and gave him a message to be carried to Ralph Hardy. Brother Wilkinson leaves tonight by plane for Washington, D.C. The message to Brother Hardy was one of caution in reporting to the Brethren matters of highly confidential nature about world and national conditions. We are grateful for the information, but he must safeguard himself at all times." (1)
