Ann Prior Jarvis's account of Lorenzo Snow's 1899 visit to St. George, I mentioned that I had a question about the sources for the story.
I am serving in the Young Women organization of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, so I do not attend the adult classes and I have not kept up with reading the lesson manual for the adult classes. This evening I looked at this year's manual, which is Teachings of Presidents of the Church: Lorenzo Snow. A recent lesson was Chapter 12: "Tithing, a Law for Our Protection and Advancement." The lesson — undoubtedly due to the excellent staff at the Church History Library — thoroughly sources the entire story. The list of sources includes the two newspaper articles shown here.
|Deseret Evening News, "In Juab and Millard Stakes," May 29, 1899, 5.|
|Deseret Evening News, "Pres. Snow in Sunny St. George," May 17, 1899. 2.|
The second article includes a name I couldn't decipher in Ann's account, so I fixed that in the previous post.
