[Leonard Arrington]
This morning at 9:00 a.m. the executives of the Historical Department were invited to meet with the First Presidency on the matter of exchanging documents with the RLDS Historian's Department. ... Earl [Olson, RLDS] will furnish Brother McConkie with xeroxes of the Kirtland Book of Revelations and xeroxes of other revelations which have been printed but are not in the Doctrine and Covenants. ... Brother McConkie said, "This opens the door I have looked forward to; namely, the opportunity of considering additional revelations in a new edition of the Doctrine and Covenants." He specifically mentioned two or three that he knew about that he has long felt should be included in the D&C and this will give him an opportunity of making a recommendation of that to the First Presidency. ...
