Messrs. S. M. Nye &
Russell Holbrook
Portland, Oregon Territory.
Gentlemen,
Yours of May 25th addressed to Gov. Young came to hand pr. mail on the 15th inst, & in reply I have to inform you that there is, as yet, but one Newspaper printed in this Territory; it is called The Deseret News, and is printed every week at $6. a year, payable in advance. Not presuming that you wished Governor Young to advance this amount, I can only say that upon the receipt of $12 two copies of the Deseret News will be regularly forwarded to you for one year.
I am not aware that our Vallies have any particular advantages except those of a healthy & pleasant climate, and excellent soil which the dryness of our climate renders it necessary to irrigate in order to raise crops

Yours respectfully

Albert Carrington

Editor of Deseret News
