A Brigham Young
From the life of Thomas Grover: He worked in the gold mines for a year and during that time he collected about $20,000 in gold dust from the California members of the Church and turned it into the tithing fund of the Church. In addition to this, on the return home, he was chosen captain of a rich company of Mormons returning to Utah, when by his influence and example the company put into the hands of the Church leaders in tithing and loans such a generous contribution of gold dust that Pres. Young putting his hands on Brother Grover’s’ shoulders said, “Brother Grover, if every Latter-day Saint would do as you have done there would be no need for a tithing among this people.”
