Dear Brother--
Your note asking for the loan of two hundred bushels of wheat until next harvest to enable you to finish your mill is received, and the request is granted.

You will learn by the Brethren returning, of a meeting held in the Tabernacle on the 6th and 7th of this month, which was adjourned until the 13th of November next. If convenient we would be glad for you and your counselors to attend. The invitation is also extended to all the Presiding officers of the church, and their counselors, including the Presidents of the several quorums of the Seventies and Elders, and of the lesser Priesthood, as well as all the Bishops and high Counselors. You will pleast notify in your vicinity.

All is peace with us at present and we feel to regard rejoice before the Lord for his manifest mercy and great goodness continually exercised towards his people.

May the Lord continue to bless you and all Israel, and help them to triumph over all their foes is the constant prayer of your

Brother in the Gospel of Christ
