Today in Mormon History ...

Priesthood meeting in LDS community of Cardston, Canada holds a discussion on "whether or not a man can obtain eternal increase with one wife." Everyone who speaks agrees that polygamy is an essential doctrine of the Church and H. L. Hinman who brought his second wife to Cardston in the late 1880s or early 1890s, adds that he "thought a man must live with more than one woman at the same time to fulfill the law." Charles Card points out that they should "not publish these things to the world," but "they should obey all commandments of God." (1)
