“Joseph A. Young alluded to his preaching in England with Geo[rge] [D.] Grant. Bro[ther] Joseph in a public meeting in England had observed that Joseph Smith was as great a man and as good as ever lived upon the Earth, Jesus Christ excepted. Geo[rge] [D.] Grant afterwards spoke and said he excepted no man and that Joseph was the best man that ever lived.” ~Brigham Young Journal – 25 August 1859~


“[T]he entry goes on: Brigham Young agrees with his brother [Joseph Young] that Jesus is an exception, but remarks that Grant’s sentiment shows the nobility of his character.”
