[President Heber J. Grant]
She is living with her daughter, Bessie Badger Higgs. Bessie's husband married her contrary to the Manifesto, notwithstanding I had warned him time and time again when he was the Secretary of the European Mission, that it is all wrong to take another wife since the Manifesto, especially since John W. Taylor and Matthias Cowley had been deposed as apostles. I gave her husband my word that if the day ever came that a man could legitimately get another wife with the approval of the Church, I would tell him so. His brother-in-law, Ralph Badger, gave him a 'thrashing.'
