G. Salt Lake City
April 15th 1865.
I have been informed that you have had considerable experience in running woolen machinery and in taking care of it, and that your wife can manage Power Looms.
I would like to have you come up, if you feel like it, to run my woolen Machine with Bro. Forsyth who is now running it. I do not want to let the Factory lie still an hour, but desire to have it run night and day, as I have an abundance of Wool. There are 240 spindles in the Factory.
I have seven Hand Looms which the hands are now working; but I have seven or eight Power Looms which I am anxious to get to running as soon as possible.
If you would like to work for me, I would like you to come right away: if not, let me know as quick as possible so that I can get somebody else.
I remain Your Brother,
