[Franklin D. Richards]
After long & careful discussion of the whether to surrender to the Gov[erno]r. the appointing power [of territorial officials], If we adopt his mode we must repeal our law made good by 30 years use ... When they wrest them from us, God will handle them.

[Franklin D. Richards Diary, as quoted in Minutes of the Apostles of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 1910-1951, Privately Published, Salt Lake City, Utah 2010]
