Richards, and George Q. Cannon of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints each spoke on topics related to the assassination, including the uncertainty of human life, the country's mourning, and the privileges of American citizenship. Cannon compared the assassination of Abraham Lincoln to the murder of LDS Prophet Joseph Smith.
