150 years ago today - Nov 14, 1869

Brigham Young, in the Salt Lake Tabernacle addressed mothers specifically: "Why do you not live so as to rebuke disease? It is your privilege to do so without sending for the Elders ...It is the privilege of a mother to have faith and to administer to her child; this she can do herself, as well as sending for the Elders to have the benefit of their faith."

[Journal of Discourses, 13: 155, as quoted at http://ordainwomen.org/quotes. See Quinn, "Mormon Political Conflicts" for full cite and context.]
