[John Henry Smith]

... I received a copy of the following revelation.

Revelation given through President John Taylor,

... Thus saith the Lord ... Let my servants George Teasdale and Heber J. Grant be appointed to fill the vacancies in the Twelve... You may appoint Seymour B. Young to fill up 'the vacancy in the presiding quorum of seventies, if he will conform to my law [plural marriage]; for it is not meet that men who will not abide by law shall preside over my priesthood ....
