[Brigham Young Jr.]
Met Presidency in temple at 12 noon. Considerable talk was had & Pres[ident] Cannon read a document purporting to have been written under Pres[ident] Jno Taylor's dictation which gave C. complete control over all the B. & B. "Bennion and Bullock] dedicated stock which he afterwards gave up to claimants, and now claims that he is responsible to God alone for the management of his dedicated B. & B. stock. This was all news to the Council or Bro[ther] C. had carried the idea that his stock was still dedicated as we understood it. I was shocked then to hear Bro[ther] C. make the statement the I am the sole custodian of the dedicated stock. I understood Pres[ident] Taylor that this st[sic] by his successor in office to which it would be duly transferred at proper time. All was forgiven by us all and we partook of the sacrament I think worthily before God.
