Evening attended the [first meeting of] '"Deseret Theological Institute'" in the Social Hall and heard an address by President B. Young who stated that the whole object of the Institution was comprehended in these words. To know the only wise God and Jesus Christ whom he has sent, which is Life Eternal. Spoke of Adam being a God and head of the human family. to know him was to learn his true character. He spoke for more than an hour. -- Salt Lake City
