145 years ago today - Jan 16, 1879

Editorial comment of LDS political newspaper, the Salt Lake Herald: "We question if seventy-six polygamous marriages have been solemnized in the Endowment house, this city, in a year, or even twice that period." In fact, during 1878, 113 men entered polygamous marriages in the Endowment House.
