[Joseph F. Smith and John R. Winder letter to C. L. Olsen]
[W]e were reminded of the published utterances of the late President Brigham Young to the effect, that the spirit enters the body of the unborn child at the time of what is known as quickening; and the conclusion was therefore reached by us that until the Lord reveals something to the contrary, it would be well for us not to teach or publish anything having a tendency to conflict with the published views of President Brigham Young.

[Joseph F. Smith and John R. Winder, letter to C. L. Olsen, Kenney Papers, original in LDS Archives]
