[President Heber J. Grant]
The Seven Presidents of Seventies met with us and each member of the council of the Twelve and of the First Presidency also five members of the First Council of Seventy (Brother Kimball being out of town) expressed themselves regarding Brother Roberts' sermon, and the consensus of opinion was that it would give the impression that Brother Roberts was criticising (sic) the administration of the Church since the days of the Prophet Joseph Smith. President Roberts insisted that he had no such intention, and said that any kind statement I wished him to make or would prepare for him to sign he would be glad to sign. I told him that all I wanted was his acknowledgment that he had no intention of making reelections, that that covered the whole ground as far as I was concerned.
