G. S. L. City, Nov. 27, 1861.

Bishop William Miller,
Provo, U. T.,

Dear Brother:-Br. Chester Snyder, the bearer of these lines, is anxious to have the personal care and charge of his little son by his former wife Belinda, to which, under the circumstances, I have no objections. As he now visits your place for the purpose of bringing his son home with him, I wish you to call on sister Belinda with br Snyder, and endeavor to have both parties view the matter in a correct light for the best interests of all concerned.

Doubtless this will be easily accomplished, as the boy is old enough to begin to require a fathers care and sister Belinda will still have with her the two girls.

Your attention to this matter will oblige,
Your Brother in the Gospel,

Brigham Young
