140 years ago today - Sep 4, 1879

[Joseph F. Smith]
It was agreed to appropriate $100,000 to affect a final settlement between the [Brigham Young] family and the executors and the church. A good feeling prevailed in the council, notwithstanding we felt that our action was to placate thieves and robbers, and purchase immunity from further plundering and robbery.

[Joseph F. Smith, Diary, as quoted in Minutes of the Apostles of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 1835-1951, Electronic Edition, 2015]
