Of his wives there were present, Margaret P. Young, Eliza B. Young, and Amelia F. Young. President Zina D. H. Young was detained at home on account of the illness of some of her grandchildren. There were many from a distance, relatives and friends, and it was pleasant to see the old friends and to meet them, even for a few minutes. Time rushes onward and ere long there will be but a few people living who knew Brigham Young personally. Brigham Young was a true friend to woman and he reposed confidence in women, and was ever anxious to see our sisters step forward in the line of progress and advancement; he favored woman's entire freedom in all the walks of life.

The conference of the Young People's Associations that convened in this city on June 2 and 3 was one of great significance, and the attendance was very large indeed. The veteran president of the Church was present and gave the opening address, which was very gratifying to the assembly.

At present it is the residence of President Lorenzo Snow, whose life and labors are a part of Church history, and who, at the advanced age of eighty-seveyears, still maintains his and vitality energies with all his faculties in a truly wonderful degree. His presence at the reception was a great attraction and hundreds of young people from a distance had the opportunity of meeting him personally and exchanging greetings, which was doubtless fully appreciated.
