Went off to Provo with party to celebrate Sister Smiths birthday 83. on the 3rd, but she could not be away on that day so Sister Ida Dusenberry chose today for Provo– exercises at the Academy in the forenoon, Tabernacle afternoon. There has never been such an oration to any woman in this Church before, President Smith most of all in paying homage to her as a Mother in Israel and exemplary in life and character. Tabernacle services were mostly congratulatory, reception in the evening at Academy gymnasium, also banquet there at noon. Sister Smith and myself slept at Ida Dusenberry’s and were very happy and comfortable {p. 92}
