G. S. L. City Nov. 23rd, 1853
Brother Welcome Chapman,
Your Letter of Nov. 18th, arrived this day, and in reply permit me to suggest, that I think Sister Stainer rather too young to take a step of so much importance; and my counsel to you both, in this matter, is that you await three or four years, and learn what your feelings are then.
I Remain as ever
Your friend & Brother in the Gospel
Brigham Young
