110 years ago today - Dec 7, 1910

President [David H.] Cannon was very pleased with the privilege of greeting the saints this morning. Wished more were here. Spoke a few words about the garment. We are told the garment is a pattern of one given to Adam and Eve in the garden. If the sleeve is cut off it will not be the proper garment. Said, President [Brigham] Young once told a young woman that they could turn in the collar and roll up the sleeves but they must not cut them off. President Cannon instructed the Ordinance Workers to clothe the people with the proper garments. Spoke of the responsibility of those taking names to see that the dead are properly endowed and of those taking [dramatic] parts to render them correctly and of those engaged in any manner in this work.
