Hon. Isaac C. Haight
Dear Brother:--
It is our wish to have you proceed with the Iron works, we think that you may be able to retain sufficient force to proceed and carry on the usual business of the settlement as you must be considerably strengthened by the brethren from San Bernardino; `tis true you may be interrupted but we think that it will be best for you to go ahead and have the Brethren put in their crops and attend to all other matters as usual, and still be ready to act in any emergency. We very much need iron and feel very anxious to have some made. We have no news of importance except the arrival of Col. Kane who yet remains but intends to leave for the enemy's camp at the earliest possible date, we presume he will go next week, his health is improving all is peace and quietness with us.
May the Lord bless and prosper you.
Your Brother in the Gospel of Christ
