[Rudger Clawson]
A letter from David H. Cannon, president St. George Temple, and addressed to President Smith, was read. He said that they were short of help in ordinance work and recommended that Wm. Gardner of Pine Valley be called to labor in the temple as a missionary. This letter precipitated a discussion in relation to the temple, namely, as to whether it would not be a good policy to close said temple for three or four months during the summer, in view of the very light attendance. It was learned that on many days the companies were limited to some seven or eight people, or, in others words, that they were no larger than that number. Elder Clawson moved the St. George Temple be closed until after the October conference next. Seconded and carried.
