[Heber J. Grant]
[Upon receiving David O. McKay's recommendation that John H. Taylor be appointed president of the Salt Lake Missionary Home] I honestly feel that Brother Taylor is one of the very best men that could possible be chosen for the position, but I have been opposed to his being place in charge, simply because he is my son-in-law. But I told the brethren I was perfectly willing to withdraw my objections, and it was finally decided to have him return home and take charge of the Mission Home.
