Great Salt Lake City, July 14/54
Bro. Joseph B. Noble

I have just received a few lines from your wife, Millesant, in which she complains of your treatment of her, and of your style of providing. You must certainly remember what I told you previously to your having sister Millesant sealed to you, and what you said at the time; and my counsel to you is to use her well, and provide for her even as a wife should be treated when she is doing the best she knows how. Should you neglect this counsel or not feel disposed to comply with it, I shall be under the necessity of looking after your course.

Respectfully

Your brother in the Gospel

Brigham Young
