Thomas L Kane, wherein he mentioned his respect for myself & the Late Bro J. M.

It was not, as some writers have maintained. a meeting of the secret Council of Fifty. For a discussion of the Council, see Klaus J. Hansen, Quest for Empire: The Political Kingdom of God and the Council of Fifty in Mormon Hi.rtory ([East Lansing] : Michigan State University Press, 1967). 3*The case of Thomas R. Marsh is discussed in footnote 75.
