[Apostle Brigham Young Jr.]
Salt Lake City, Thurs., Oct. 10th, 1901.

What a day--long to be remembered by us all. At 6:00 a.m. Bro. McDonald came in buggy for me. Pres. Snow very much worse Saw him awake, knew me. He was lying in S.W. room of Beehive. His family were sent for. I came home, rested and returned to Temple, clothed and prayed for Pres. Snow. While discussing business, … Pres. Lorenzo Snow looked mild and happy. Two hours before his death, I put my hand on his brow and said, "Pres. do you recognize me?" He replied, "I should rather think I did," with a twinkle in his eyes and his usual attractive smile about his lips.
