New York store, inasmuch as that property belongs to the church and is much larger and we are paying $200. a year rent for this. The Trustees immediately went over and examined the premises and decided to enlarge the cellar and make the "New York Store" our office. They mentioned the place to President Young and he agreed to it at once. In council the matter was brought up and Brother Parley proposed to sell his whole establishment. They offered to give him 3 Lots and houses for it, viz. the one where Joseph Young lives, Mitchels house and Brother Lees. He wants $3000 but seems disposed to take the offer if the houses suit. After council I was at the office.
