130 years ago today - Dec 19, 1891

[Brigham Young Jr.]
At the office the doctrine was advanced that, if the husband of plural wives did not, under the circumstances, live with his first wife he was perpetuating the same wrong upon her that congressional law had perpetuated upon the plural wives. After much argument the brethren conceded that the first wife was only entitled to her share of the husbands time proportionatelyto his number of wives. I assert that, I will have all of my wives or none God being my helper. 1892
