1859 November 7 Letter to Vienna Jacques


The bill from Brother Workman was adjusted and now appears very reasonable.

G. S. L. City, Nov. 7, 1859,

Sister Vienna Jacques,

Dear Madam:-- I should sooner have replied to your note of Sep. 18, but one circumstance and another has prevented. A few weeks past I gave br. Bryant Stringham a copy of br. Workman's bill, and asked him to call upon br. Hardy and go with him and examine the work done for you by br. Workman. They did so, and called upon me to-day and reported in br. Workman's presence. He said that he did not want any more than was right. This bill, you will recollect, was $93.00/100, and br's Stringham and Hardy informed him that they thought $90.00 would be right in the case, to which br. Workman replied that he was agreed, and said he would throw off $5 00/100 more, leaving $85 00/100 as his demand against you for the work charged in the bill. There was more work done than appeared in the bill.
From all I can learn, I should presume that the bill is now quite reasonable, and trust that it will prove satisfactory to you.

Your Brother in the Gospel.

Brigham Young
