[John Nuttall]
It was represented that there are five large windows needed [for the Salt Lake Temple] which will cost $1500.00 each. Bro[ther]s. John R Winder, M[oses] Thatcher, Geo[rge] Romney, H[eber] J Grant & J[ohn] R Murdock agreed to each furnish 1 window. Pres[iden]t Jos[eph] F Smith moved that we accept the offer of these brethren. Sec[onded] & Car[rie]d. Elder B. H. Roberts suggested that a Bureau of Information be established at the Worlds Fair so that Elders can be appointed and printed matter provided to give information to the thousands who will attend there. Elder A[ngus]. M Cannon also suggested such a bureau at Salt Lake City. On motion of Elder Moses Thatcher the consideration of these suggestions was left to the First Presidency for such action as they deem proper. On motion a few of the brethren were requested to take the names and amounts which each one present felt to give to the completion of the Temple. $50,000.00 was subscribed at this meeting.
