130 years ago today - Oct 3, 1889

First Presidency & apostles meet 2:30 in prayer room at Gardo until 5:20. Bro[ther] W[illia]m McNeil, the janitor of the Logan [Utah] Temple, who was released from the penitentiary yesterday, having served for months for living with his wives, called & reported his circumstances. He has a sick wife & is in trouble about how he shall get along in his family affairs. It was decided that he may board & lodge at the temple, & receive his payfor his office while he has been absent. Also that Bro[ther] Samuel Roskelly shall be permitted to board & lodge at the temple.
