[Leonard J. Arrington]
Packer writes a four-page letter to the First Presidency about inappropriate material in Brigham Young's Letters to His Sons: (1) the use of tobacco and (2) conflict over Young's will. Hunter informs him that the letter should have come to him and was a breach of church protocol, but Packer becomes more outspoken in opposing publication of any uncomplimentary details about church history.
