130 years ago today - Nov 1, 1891

[Marriner W. Merrill]
I attended Quarterly Conference today in Logan. Presidents Woodruff, Cannon, and Joseph F. Smith were all present and occupied all the time of both meetings, also all of the time of the Priesthood Meeting in the evening, and taught the people in these meetings that not only plural marriages had ceased in the Church but that Brethren should not live with their plural families hereafter, but observe strictly the law of the land in this matter, but were to provide for their plural families and educate their children as best they could. I did not attend the evening meeting; was unwell.
