150 years ago today - Jan 25, 1874

President Brigham Young next addressed the meeting, and said among other things: '"when we wear out the prejudice which is now felt by the wicked world against the doctrine of polygamy, the honest will flock into the Church by thousands and millions; and the only thing I am afraid of, is the effect of popularity and riches.'" He further dwelt on retrenchment. -- St. George, Utah
