[Apostle Marriner W. Merrill Diary]
I attended meeting with my Quorum and First Presidency at the President's office at 10 a. m. Church attorneys also present. It was decided that President Angus M. Cannon better plead guilty to unlawful cohabitation and thereby save his wife and Brethren from going to court. Our Quorum after adjournment met at our room in the Temple at 11 a. m. [Cannon later served time]
