[First Presidency and Quorum of Twelve]
The following telegram was received from Bro[ther, apostle & senator elect]. [Reed] Smoot:
"Extra session United States Senate likely. Lielich's polygamy charge prevents oath. Excited public and the press against our interests." ...
The following sent to Bro[ther]. Smoot this afternoon:
"Leading Gentiles say that you should swear out complaint against Lielich for criminal libel and have him arrested on his appearance in Washington [D.C.]. It would offset his work more than anything at present. We think it would be good thing to do."
