I Felt Like Shouting Hallelujah!

In the evening went to the Temple and met in the circle with several of the Twelve. Before we met I asked each of them the desires he wished to offer in prayer. Bro. Erastus Snow prayed, and I was mouth in the Circle. We had a most heavenly time and felt that the Lord was near to us. I felt like shouting Hallelujah! (7 October 1885)

About

Next to Brigham Young, George Q. Cannon was arguably the best-known Latter-day Saint in the last half of the nineteenth century. His record covers half a century, a period in which he served as an editor and publisher, a businessman, an educator, a member of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, a territorial delegate in Congress, and a counselor to church presidents Brigham Young, John Taylor, Wilford Woodruff, and Lorenzo Snow.

This website publishes for the first time George Q. Cannon’s journal from 1855 through 1883. It also reproduces Cannon’s journal from 1849 through 1854, which was previously published in two print volumes. Other installments will follow on this site. Eventually this site will publish online, and at no charge, the entirety of Cannon's journal.
