[Apostle Heber J. Grant Diary]
Had a talk with B.H. Roberts and Ida Dusenbury regarding plural marriages that are being performed at the present time and I learned that Brother Cowley was supposed to be quoted as saying that these marriages could be performed today as well as they ever could, and that it was all right to perform them. These reports had come to Brother Roberts and Sister Dusenbury, and I am hoping that they are not true, because if Brother Cowley is saying anything of this kind, it is an outrage, and I would naturally think that after having been dropped from the Quorum of the Twelve, that he would not pressure to make any such remarks. I understand he is a very sick man or I would investigate the case at once.
