This is President B. W. Smith’s 80th birthday and also Susan H. Wells. she is 72, today– A party is being given for Sister Smith at the Bee Hive House, Sister Sarah J. Cannon and myself gave her a birthday book in which each one here writes his or her name. Most of her old friends and family are here‒ after luncheon was over, which was served on small tables‒ there was some music and speaking. I was one of those who were called upon to speak. President Joseph F. Smith presided & announced the names of the speakers. It was a very fine gathering and an ovation to the Reverend lady. the day too was very pleasant [p. 155] {p. 108}
