A FEW of the “good sisters” and most intimate friends of Mrs. Bathsheba Smith convened at her residence on Thanksgiving Day, in the capacity of a SURPRISE Party [. . .]

[. . .] Miss E. R. Snow was called upon by the president of the meeting [Rachel R. Grant] to deliver the opening address; she introduced the subject of the women of Utah being represented at the Centennial; she wished them to understand it was not a sectional but national affair, and she wished all to use their utmost influence to give the women of Utah a fair representation. [. . .] [p. 101]
