Brigham Young Boasts About His Many Wives

“Brother Cannon remarked that people wondered how many wives and children I had. He may inform them, that I shall have wives and children by the million, and glory, and riches and power and dominion, and kingdom after kingdom, and reign triumphantly.”
(Journal of Discourses: Volume 8 – Page 178)

“I could prove to this congregation that I am young; for I could find more girls who would choose me for a husband than can any of the young men.”
(Journal of Discourses: Volume 5 – Page 210)

“The next man who came on to the carpet wanted to know how many wives brother Brigham had. I replied, ‘…I will guess, if that will do you any good…if I may judge from appearances, I should presume he has some fifty or sixty.'”
(Mormon Apostle – Ezra T. Benson – Journal of Discourses: Volume 6 – Pages 80-81)
