125 years ago today - Dec 12, 1896

[Heber J. Grant]
In company with Prest. David H. Cannon, drove to St. George. Bro. Cannon and I had a very pleasant visit, and I was somewhat surprised to have him inform me that many years ago, when he was bishop of one of the wards in St. George, and upon the day that the first wife of Bro. Daniel Seegmiller died, and when my cousin Anthony W. Ivins was but a small boy, that as he, Cannon, was going to the graveyard he rode in a buggy with Apostle Erastus Snow, and that Bro. Snow remarked to him that if Bro. Ivins kept the commandments of the Lord, and did his duty, that the day would come when he would be chosen to be an apostle of the Lord Jesus Christ.
