135 years ago today - Thursday, Oct 9, 1884

[Abraham H. Cannon]
At 10 a.m. I attended a meeting in the Social Hall with S[eymour] B. Young, John W. Taylor and John Q. [Cannon], and was introduced to [the Council of] 50. "The Kingdom of God and its laws, and the keys thereof and judgment in the hands of His servants, Ahman Christ."

[This is last time the Council of Fifty formally convenes. Its last surviving member dies in 1945.]
