130 years ago today - Jun 30, 1893

Apostle Heber J Grant, in New York seeking a loan for the church receives a letter from Second Counselor Joseph F. Smith: "This is the end of the month and not a dollar to pay anybody with not even Pres[iden]t Woodruff and the Twelve. We have sent out or caused to be sent, circulars to the Presidents of Stakes to dispose of anything on hand in their stakes, in the shape of stock-produce or other property, cheap for cash and send the same to us at once. There is nothing doing-no tithing coming in-or means stirring and everybody seems paralized as well as business."
