On This Day...

A DAILY FACTOID OF OUR ART HISTORY

August 19

Weeks before publication, author and apostle James E. Talmage wrote in his journal, on this day (1915), "Finished the actual writing on the book Jesus the Christ, to which I have devoted every spare hour since settling down to the work of composition on September 14th last. Had it not been that I was privileged to do this work in the Temple it would be at present far from completion. I have felt the inspiration of the place and have appreciated the privacy and quietness incident thereto. I hope to proceed with the work of revision without delay." https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jesus_the_Christ_(book)
