145 years ago today - Oct 6, 1877

For the first time, conference sustains John Taylor as president of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, an office not presented for a vote since the release of Orson Hyde. Conference also sustains the Twelve as "Prophets, Seers and Revelators" for the first time in 41 years. John Taylor is sustained as the Trustee-in-Trust with the rest of the Twelve as "Counselors." [John Nuttle records "I never experienced such pleasurable sensations in my life as when the voting was progressing"]
