Dear Brother,
At the earliest possible date, I wish that you and some of the wide awake boys of your vicinity such as Bros. Belnap. J. W. Young, George Hill, and others of that class, would take a trip through by Ogden hole to Bridger, or Green River, and ascertain the feasability for a Road through that Section to strike at Bridger, or Green River. This I want attended to, and if <found> practicable, it is <my> wish that the emigration should pass that way, hereafter.

Brigham Young

P. S.
You may strike, or intersect the Road
this side of Bear River, and you should
get some proper person to pilot you <the>
emigration through.
