Great Salt Lake City May 21/54
Six Oclock. P. M.
Prests. B. Young &
H. C. Kimball,
Dear Brethren,
I wrote to you at even date; and mailed it at 1. Oclock, since, City Creek seems to rise considerably, and probably it may cause us some trouble.
At meeting today, I made a call upon the congregation (in the morning) which was strongly backed up in word & deed by Bro Hyde, for means to meet the payment of the 1400 Bushels wheat promised and Contracted for by Bros. Clawson & Decker; in the afternoon the call was liberally responded to, and we now have as the result $1500 <in clear cash> with a fair prospect of making up the total amount required by <the> manifest liberal spirit of the brethren.

P. S.
Bro Woolley reports, that Prest. Young's business or Secular
affairs are moving about right.
