Dear Brother:-
Your note of the 20th. ult. came to hand last night-- you are right in making your location at Heberville
We wish you to get all the Cotton seed that you can, and if there is not enough to occupy your time, plant corn, sow barley, wheat, <tobacco> and other things to make up. Be sure and put out some fruit trees; Brother Lee and others can probably furnish you with such trees and seed as you may need. I do not know any cotton seed here; if we should find any we will send it you.
All is peace and quietness with us, and a general time of health.
May the Lord bless and preserve you. I remain your Brother
in the gospel of Christ

Brigham Young
