Dear Brother,
About five minutes ago Bro. S. A. Knowlton requested that his daughter who was married to Erastus Debby might be assisted to the Valley as she desires to come; her husband took her to Beaver Island, and there left her.
We are aware that it is rather in the day to do anything this season, but Bro Knowlton seemed anxious and promises to foot the bill.
All that we can say is, for you to help her to come on if you can the present season.
As ever Your Brother in Christ,

Brigham Young
