Lorenzo Snow Letter 1859

Lorenzo Snow penned a letter to Brigham Young on August 1, 1859 regarding his visit to Willow Creek. Lorenzo Snow gave the congregation some instruction from the Prophet and then asked them to express any feelings and to vote for a Bishop. “Alfred Cordon was unanimously voted in as their Bishop and President without a single expression of opposition…I never saw a better spirit prevail at a meeting.”

The members of the Willow Creek Ward, which shortly afterward became the Willard Ward, obviously had great respect for Alfred Cordon and his ability to preside over their congregation.
