Brother William Miller:-
Brother Andrew Cunningham has been selected as you are aware to take charge of a Regiment to operate in our defence. He was last fall engaged in the Black foot Mission on Snake River over which he presided -- We wish to supply his place as President of that Mission and thought of you to fill that place if agreable to you. It is important that the brethren of that Mission should be gathered up and return as soon as practicable as the brethren after putting in grain cashed their provisions and other property and all came away. If it meets your mind to go and take charge of this mission we should be glad to have you do so. Please signify your mind by return mail and oblige your

Brother in Christ
