[Francis M. Lyman]
I told President [Joseph F.] Smith of my desire to do something for father [i.e., former apostle Amasa Lyman, stripped of apostleship for teaching false doctrine]. Told him of my dreams and my sister Martha's, how father had appeared to us and plead his cause. How President [Lorenzo] Snow told me that there was no doubt but that he would come out all right in the end. I told him I wanted to be baptized for father and then to have him, President Smith, to put his hands on my head and restore father's former blessings upon me for him. He said he would consider the matter with his counselors and had no doubt but it would be all right and he would do as I had asked.
