[Heber J. Grant]
'Last night I slept only two or three hours. I was worried, my eyes were full of tears of gratitude for the fine picture [Movie: "Brigham Young"] that I witnessed Tuesday, and I had thanked Colonel Joy sincerely, and remarked, "The Lord bless you," and he said "God bless you, Mr. Grant." I had missed the statement that Brigham Young said he had lied. My attention was called to it yesterday, and I could not sleep all night. I do not think I slept more than three hours. I had made up my mind to catch the train this morning and go to Los Angeles and try to persuade the picture people to change that, but I found that Brother Clark had telephoned to Colonel Joy and he had promised to do his best to make the change. They thought I ought not to go alone and I had telephoned George D. Pyper and asked him to go with me, and I intended to go tomorrow, but after learning of the conversation by telephone and also sending telegrams, that it could not possibly be done, at this late date, we decided it would be a waste of time and would accomplish nothing for me to go to the Coast.
