G. S. L. City, July 16, 1861.

Bishop Andrew Moffitt,
Manti, Sanpete Co., U. T.,

Dear Brother:-

Br. Nelson has shown me the end view of a building, as you requested him, which is entirely too vague for me to give any opinion upon, showing nothing by which to arrive at the length of the proposed building, or any thing else about it.

As lately advised, I deem it best, under present circumstances, for you to go on and nicely finish up your Council House, and let that answer for awhile, leaving your meeting house to a more convenient season. When your Council House is done, and you are ready to begin on your meeting house, I will give you a plan for a meeting house adapted to your wants and population.

Your Brother in the Gospel,

Brigham Young
