115 years ago today - Oct 28, 1905

After a week of Quorum of the Twelve meetings so secret that no official minutes are kept, apostles John W. Taylor and Matthias F. Cowley write formal resignations due to their participation in post-Manifesto polygamy. Resignations are held in reserve unless considered necessary to save the church from a U.S. constitutional amendment or to save Apostle Reed Smoot from explusion from the U.S. Senate.
