Original Ogden Stake Tabernacle. Used by permission, Utah State Historical Society.

At half past eight o clock on Friday morning the Tabernacle was well filled with parents and children, anxiously expectant, and when Miss Snow rose to address them they were all attention.

The Spirit of the Lord rested upon the speakers and all felt it to be a memorable occasion.
