Sir
The Safe remained for Two years in storage, and was not considered in good Condition for use, I finally concluded that I would put it in order and use it.
I cannot say that I would be willing to entrust valuable property or cash therein, without other safe guards; neither do I consider it safe against fire.
The safe can be had by paying the Enclosed bill, which are the charges on it up to this date.

Respectfully

Brigham Young, Governor
