Mrs Jemima Young,
Provo, U.T.

Dear Sister: Your letter, informing me that the cattle are missing, is at hand. I do not think they are stolen, and presume that James or some other person will soon find them, if they are not already found. A team requires pretty close looking after, and careful handling, to be of much benefit; and when out of sight, is liable to be driven off by persons passing through, or those leaving.

The folks are all well, and send their love to you. Hiram has moved into the house I bought of George D. Grant, next south of Col. Rockwoods, where Emeline lived when you was here; Alice has moved into the house I bought of br. Farnham; and Joseph A. has moved into the White House on the hill; which leaves us quite alone in the Bee Hive house, nobody but mother Young, Luna, and John, beside the hired help.

Hoping that the cattle will soon be found, if they are not already, I remain Your Brother in the Gospel,

Brigham Young
