Elder William C. Gollaher,
Tooele, U.T.,

Dear Brother:-

I am advised by br Dwight Eveleth, of San Francisco, Cal., that br. James Munroe Ide has left $300 with him, subject to your order. Transmission of money by mail is so uncertain, that I have thought it best to inform you that I think I can arrange the matter for you, if you would like any kind of property for a part or the whole of the money; or, in case you do not wish any kind of property in payment, if I could manage to pay you from time to time as you might need.

An answer, at your earliest convenience, will oblige,

Your Brother in the Gospel,

Brigham Young
