G. S. L. City, Sept 15th 1858

Bishop Warren S. Snow, and
George P. Billings,
Dear Brethren:--
As you are aware we have rather a surplus of Camp followers, fancy Speculators, &c., who need considerable watching. If it would be perfectly convenient, and brother Snow feels like sparing him, we would like to have brother George come with a portion of his family, if he wishes, and spend the winter with us.
Not having any news of interest to communicate since the departure of Brother Snow, I close, praying the Lord to bless you, and to help Israel to triumph over all their fores.
As ever, your Brother in the Gospel of Christ,
Brigham Young
