[Brigham Young Jr.]
Met in Temple. did not have my clothes so not enough present. we did not dress. Had long talk on 'obeying the law.' Concluded to let the spirit direct us in counciling brethren what to do. We must not council men to disobey the Law, but separate their families to other states etc. is my feeling. Truly I am a good christian and follow their example in that I always send away one wife before I take an other never having two women at once.
