[George Q. Cannon]
I was carried to the Franklin station by Brother Wilcken to catch the 4:17 train for Provo, I having promised Bishop J. P. R. Johnson and S. S. Jones that I would come down some evening and see them, with the view to the settling of some property matters between Brother Johnson and his first wife's children. He had deeded his property to his wives before he went into the penitentiary, thinking thereby to save it from being seized for fines. He did so with the understanding that they were to deed it back if needed. But his first wife had died, and before dying had told her children that she wanted them to retain this property.
