... under existing circumstances it is not consistent nor proper that the Church should continue to print and publish Brother [Matthias F.] Cowley's works, especially when there is plenty of literature appropriate for proselyting purposes which may be re-published instead, we therefore suggest that a new edition of Cowley's talks be not issued under Church auspices.

[Cowley, a former apostle, had been disciplined for continuing the practice of plural marriage]
