Bro William P. Peck
I wish to say to you, it will be best for you to provide a good home for your Second Wife, and take good care of her, see that she is well provided for, with wood, clothing food &c. &c. All men who take women to themselves and do not take good care of them, it will be said to such men by and by, take from that man that which he seemeth to have, and give to him who has been faithful. This will not apply to you more than to others, many will find themselves without wife or child in the day of reckoning.
