[Heber J. Grant]
"Bishop Nicholas G. Smith called and we had a conversation with him regarding a brother in South Africa who claims he has no negro blood in his veins wishes the priesthood. Brother Smith feels sure that this man is a negro. We concluded to wait for the return of Brother Sessions, the present president of the South African Mission, who is on his way home, before rendering a decision."
