The President [i.e., Theodore Roosevelt] told Senator [Reed] Smoot to-day, when the Senator read a postscript to a letter written him in President [Joseph F.] Smith's own handwriting expressing confidence and admiration and praying God's blessings upon him'President Roosevelt said: 'That is very kind of President Smith and I appreciate it, but you tell him for me, he must stop these polygamous marriages.'
