[Joseph F. Smith, Heber J. Grant, and B. H. Roberts letter to Board Member of YMMIA Louis Kelsch]
[E]vidences are at hand going to show that at a comparatively recent date a plural marriage was entered into; and from a report made to us by a committee of the Quorum of the Twelve, as a result of their investigations, you are implicated as having encouraged the belief that plural marriages may still be consummated, notwithstanding the declarations of the presiding authorities of the Church to the contrary. For this reason we feel that we cannot sustain you as a member of the general board of Young Men's Mutual Improvement Association, and you are therefore hereby released as a member of the board.
