125 years ago today - Jul 18, 1897

[Wilford Woodruff]
I received a copy of the Pioneer Programme and read some of it, from which I felt outraged in my feelings and in the evening expressed myself vigorously as to the manner I have been treated. I am one of the first and oldest pioneers which with my position in the church Should entitle me to some consideration. Not one of my sons or any of my family have been asked to take any part in the pioneer proceedings, whilst the Clawsons and their friends and associates are into everything. I felt like sending for Bro Spencer Clawson so as to free my mind, but concluded to wait until after the Jubilee & then express myself.
