“Yes, we always had family prayers since I can remember. I well remember
Father used to carry his spectacles in his vest pocket, and when us boys saw

and if we did not notice it mother would say, "William," or whoever was the negligent one, "get ready for prayer." After the prayer, we had a song we would sing,. . . . "
[William Smith, Quoted in Deseret News (Salt Lake City), January 20, 1894, p. 11.]
