120 years ago today - Thursday, Feb 20, 1902

Pres. Smith requested the clerk to read a dispatch, cable, from Apostle Heber J. Grant as follows, to wit: "Grant will leave Friday midday unless advised to contrary. We cannot too strongly recommend. Grant." Answer: "We are placed in a very awkward position. Don't come home at present. You had better write. Smith." Both telegrams were couched in a cipher, and the action of the Presi[dency] was concurred in by the council. The Presidency knew nothing, they said, as to Heber's purpose in coming home.
