[Brigham Young Jr.]
Appointment to meet heirs Father's [i.e., Brigham Young's] Estate at Pres[iden]t office. Bro[ther]. Geo[rge]. C[annon]. felt I ought to be the[re] so I crossed the street at 1 p.m. Number of people saw me. Meeting with 17 of 29 heirs was satisfactory. Voted for Trustees to settle up estate. Committee of Seven of heirs or representatives were appointed to devise a wayto close up the Estate and provide liberally for the widows. Adjourned sine die. ... Drove to Bro[ther] [George Q.] Cannon's farm in evening. Very dark, roads muddy but safe from enemies. Talked with Bro[ther]. C[annon]. about estate, we are united in our opinion that it should be settled up as soon as practicable. I think some of those heirs who have been settled with are becoming very hungry for money and look with longing eyes upon the fat the estate has gathered in the last 12 years.
