Dear Brother

The above is a list of names to be helped on by means of the Emigrating Fund The pay is secured as above shown. The family of Wm. Glover Sent. I have written to brother Grant about at Washington City expecting that he will be there, if he should not however you can communicate with him in relation to the subject. We are informed they will be able to come as far as Kanesville and will need assistance from that point We wrote to brother Grant to go and see them if he could, and perhaps he might dictate them in the disposition of their effects, in such a manner as would be likely to incur less expence than might otherwise be the case altho Wm. Glover has secured all that probably in any case will be necessary, yet you are aware that we wish to accommodate as many as possible. Your house is now covered as also all the other buildings which we have had the erection of this Season, the Tabernacle is progressing and if the weather continues fine will soon be secured. The items of general news will reach you through the Deseret News. I should like to hear from you frequently if possible during the Winter, do not neglect to write, all is peace and quietness with us. The brethren are exceedingly busy taking care of their crops, fixing their houses and making improvements. Your mill is doing tolerably well I should think judging from the amount of lumber which comes from it. Praying God my heavenly Father to bless, protect and direct you in the faithful discharge of the many duties devolving upon you, unto the accomplishing of your Mission and safe return
I remain as ever, your brother in the Gospel of Peace
