  1. That is pretty understated.

  2. Wonder who or what merited P.O. Box A?

  3. Jonathan: True, it’s understated. But you have to understand that this one here is a replacement letterhead for an earlier (rejected) 1891 letterhead that had the line, “The Manti Temple, where we no longer perform plural marriage sealings [wink wink].”

  4. Ha!

    Coffinberry, I don’t know who had Box A in either Manti or Salt Lake, but I suspect the Manti Temple asked specifically for Box B there — Box B was the Salt Lake address of the Church offices, becoming known all over the Church because all the mission calls had that as a return address.

  5. I knew about Box B in Salt Lake City. Who had Box A there?
