Title Diary of Brigham Young, page 026
Description the Union ward had commenced a large Storehouse for preserving grain against times of Scarcity Sunday 21 Quite well to day. Met with the Saints in the Taber- nacle, this forenoon; Bro Abel Lamb Spoke quite lengthy, followed for a Short time by Elders H. C. Kimball Sr Jos. A Young. After meeting had a look at the Organ, presented by bro Ridges to the church which he is put- ting up in the north end of the Tabernacle.27 At noon Sealed Several c0up1e.s.~~ afternoon. Bro. Bernhisel gave us Some political news, followed by Bro Wells. I spoke at Some l[e]ngth on our relations with the General Government. Met in circle as usual, im[m]ediately after meeting. `?There are several diary references to the organ for the tabernacle. Amasa Lyman in his diary notes that his contpany is bringing an organ to Salt Lake. (Lyman Journal, 1857, p. 96.) The Manuscript History, 1857, p. 337, under entry of June 29 says "A seven stopped organ arrived from San Bernardino which was donated by the Australian Saints to the Church and left at San Bernardino by the company of Saints who brought it from Australia." The Journal History for June 28, 1857, notes that Brigham Young, Heber C. Kimball, Daniel H. Wells, George A. Smith, and Amasa M. Lyman went to the tabernacle to hear "Bro Joseph Ridges and Orson Pratt Jr., play on the Organ." But thr first time the organ was played at regular services was October 11 1 1857, according to the Historian's Offire Journal, vol. 20, entry of same date. *sSealing is part of the rituals carried on in Mormon trmples. Mormon doctrine teaches that marriage honds arc not only during life on this earth but also in the hereafter. Couples are "sealed for time and eternity," as are children "sealed" to their parents to provide eternal family bonds. See Leonard J. Arrington and Davis Bitton, `The Mormon Experience, A History of the Luttrr- day Saints (New York : Alfred Knopf, 1979)) pp. 69, 205.
