To The Bishops and Military Officers South
Bros William Godbe and Thomas Copley are sent on an express to Nephi and perhaps to Fillmore. You will please to render them any of the aid you can to expedite them, in change of animals, feed, hay, having their animals in readiness on their return that they may not be hindered. Bros Godbe and Copley are sent after a trunk which was left and letters which have been sent under cover to brethren with [-] bringing to Col Kane, [-] and we do not want this express to return without obtaining them if they have to go to San Bernardino after the trunk which should have been forwarded long ago. When the brethren of the express can go no further, let other good and fast travelers take their places and this letter and go on traveling day and night until they return. The trunk is supposed to be in charge of David Savage
Post them through with speed and may God bless you and them.
