150 years ago today - Oct 9, 1867

President Young said I wish to present a subject that has never been presented to the public to my knowledge. In ordaining a man into the Quorum of the Twelve I have omited to appoint one man to take the place of Another, or to take his Crown. One man Cannot take the Crown of another. Evry man must wear his own Crown if he has one. Thomas B Marsh once was the Presidet of the Quorum of the Twelve. I now occupy that place. I Certainly would not like to take or wear Brother Marsh's Crown. (G. A. Smith says Neither would I.) Each one will have his own Crown if he has one at all, & not the Crown of another. Evry man will be rewarded according to the life he lives.
