One day Uncle Jim [James George DAVIS 1832-1909] got miffed over some thing and was writing to Brother Brigham Young about it, when his wife [Polly WILLIAMS 1838-1914] looked over his shoulder and said, "Why James, Bro. Brigham Young can't read such writin." And he answered, "Oh yes he can, he's a better scholar than I am."
