Bishop John R. Winder brought to the President's Office an agreement in which Sister M. M. Barratt agrees to furnish the sum of $20,000 to erect a building to be used for the L.D.S. College. President Lorenzo Snow authorized President Angus M. Cannon to ordain James Leach a Patriarch. Had a long visit with Pres[iden]t. [Lorenzo] Snow just after his extended interview with Gov[ernor]. Heber M. Wells and Representative [George] Sutherland. He told me what had passed between them and that if they succeeded in getting a statement from Pres[iden]t. [William] McKinley, Mark Hannah, T[homas]. C. Kearns, Senator [Redfield] Proctor & others to the effect that they desried the Evans Bill defeated he would like me to labor to that end, otherwise he want[ed] the bill to go. At the close of our conversation Pres[iden]t. Snow said: (putting his arm around my shoulders) "God Bless You." I replied "I thank you Pres[iden]t. Snow. I prize the Confidence of the Prophet of God more than all else in this world. May I allways be worthy of it." (4)
