[Heber J. Grant]
Abraham H. Cannon ... referred to the promise that President Lorenzo Snow had made some time ago, to the effect that he believed the Lord would help us out of our present financial difficulties just this once more, but that he did not think that we would have any claim on him in the future if we got into financial troubles again. He, Bro Cannon, had felt to claim this promise made by Prest. Snow and he had faith that we would receive it. He expressed the belief that our present financial troubles would be followed by a time of great wealth. He had found with much regret a spirit among the people to find fault with and criticise the First Presidency and the Apostles. He had tried to overcome this feeling and spirit wherever he had met it. He felt that the leader of the people had the right to direct in all things whether spiritual or temporal.
