Pres. E. R. Snow Smith said the greatest obstacle to speaking in public was pride; a speaker must be absorbed in the subject, we must be humble instruments in the hands of God. After some other remarks, she nominated Mrs. Elmina S. Taylor to preside over all the Y. L. M. I. A. [Young Ladies Mutual Improvement Association] in all the Stakes of Zion. She was unanimously elected. Mrs. Maggie Y. Taylor and Miss Mattie [Martha H.] Horne were chosen and elected her Counselors, Miss Louie [Louisa M.] Wells, Secretary, and Mrs. Fanny Young Thatcher, Treasurer.
Mrs. Louie [Louise B.] Felt made a few remarks [. . .] What Sister Snow had said about pride touched her; she was proud of the principles of the Gospel. [. . .]
Sister Eliza moved that the young ladies have Sister Taylor visit them in their respective Associations, and those who did not do anything resign their position, that some one be put in the place who would fill it more creditably.
