Mr. Edward L. Page,
Barry, Pike County, Illinois,
Dear Brother,
Your letter to Bro. Kimball July last has been shown to me, for which I feel thankful that my attention has been directed to your case.
It must be obvious to you that during our hurried emigration from Nauvoo, many irregularities in business matters may have occurred.
I have written to our Agent at St Louis, Bro. Erastus Snow to assist you to emigrate to this place another year. You will Confer a favor upon me if you would inform me of the amount you advanced, whether in money or property, and if you know who had the benefit of it.
It is our intention to hunt up the faithful saints who were left at Nauvoo and vicinity, and remained faithful and true; And especially those who assisted us and others out at the expense of remaining in the midst of sickness, death, and Gentile mobocracy.
Howing that you and yours may be preserved again to strike hands and be associated with your old friends and brethren.

I remain your Brother in the Gospel.

Brigham Young
