[Leonard Arrington]
James [Allen] ... told us he has learned the nature of the manifestation in the temple that led Church officials to refer to the "revelation" on the Priesthood. He said he learned this information from [religion professor] George Pace [... who ...] learned it from Elder Bruce McConkie...// ... During that prayer there also appeared some of the past presidents of the Church as witnesses that they approved. [For more info, see http://www.todayinmormonhistory.com/2018/06/40-years-ago-today-jun-27-1978-tuesday.html] ...// So this was the nature of the manifestation. If I ever hear more of this, I shall of course place it in my diary for the benefit of future historians. ...
