Mrs. Elizabeth Bedell.
Warsaw, Illinois,
Respected Madam,
Yours of Augt 23[d], came safe to hand, and in reply I have to inform you that some time past I requested Mr. Luci . L. Bedell who had clerked for his brother, your late husband, and sub-Agent Stephen B. Rose, to prepare Major Bedell's Official papers for my examination, and certificate. At the time I allude to I presumed the matter would have been attended to by the 1st October mail, and since then have instructed Major Bedell & Rose to have all the papers ready to be forwarded by this mail, which I expect will be done.
With assurance that your lamented husband's interests and those of his family, are not overlooked, or forgotten by me, and respectfully tendering you my cordial sympathy in your bereavement.

I Remain truly Your Friend

Brigham Young
P. S.
The bills and affairs of the late Major E. H. Bedell have been over looked and all the explanations made that can be done.
