80 years ago today - Sep 5, 1940

[George F. Richards diary, Sept. 5, 1940] I had a meeting with the Temple Presidency of [the] Salt Lake Temple instructing them as counseled by the [First] Presidency & the Twelve this day to discontinue [the] ring service in sealing, i.e., marrying couples where such ring service, or ceremony is used; also to discontinue prayer rooms provided with altar &c for individual use.
