[George Q. Cannon]
In the afternoon [of General Conference], the sacrament was administered, and President Woodruff desired me to occupy the whole time. I spoke for 85 minutes and was listened to with great attention.

I was very heated in speaking, and while walking up to the office I was seized with a violent pain in my bowels. It was so severe that I almost lost consciousness once or twice while in the closet. Brother L. John Nuttall heard me groan and came to me. He procured some Jamaica ginger and gave me, and helped me on to a lounge, when President Woodruff and the brethren administered to me. I was freed from pain immediately.
