President George Q. Cannon also spoke on the law of tithing. Among other things he said, 'There are those in this audience who are descendants of the old Twelve Apostles'and, shall I say, yes, descendants of the Savior himself. His seed is represented in this body of men.' Following President Cannon, President [Lorenzo] Snow arose and said that what Brother Cannon had stated respecting the literal descendants among this company of the old apostles and the Savior himself is true'that the Savior's seed is represented in this body of men.

[Abraham O. Woodruff adds "Queen Victoria is a descendant of the Prophets."]
