To Brother Crisler:
I shall not try to take an active part here. I have not strength to write much this morning, but I will send a few lines to you special and say we are soon coming home. Two weeks more and I will, I think, be on my way. I determined to do my best, and every one has helped me as far as they possibly could, and I am thankful for the strength given me. 25LtMs, Lt 159, 1910, par. 1
Elder Crisler, may the Lord spare your life to continue your precious, valuable work, is my prayer. You have been, with your valuable experience, so much help to me, to work out the things that are to me of highest value. This you have never failed to do. 25LtMs, Lt 159, 1910, par. 2

There is a great work to be done. We hope you will come to this meeting. There is much I wish to say. Are you coming to this meeting? I need you very much, but I do not want to be too anxious. When we can join one another in our labors, I think we shall not be perplexed, for the Lord is opening matters to me. All who are connected with our schools as teachers are to understand what it means to learn from the highest Source the requirements of God and then carry them out in sanctified, refined characters. We are not to follow the sentiments of the world and call this the higher education. God has been educating His people in the higher principles of education. Our principles are to be kept high and ennobling, sanctifying the receiver. The science of higher education means the grand work of sanctification. 25LtMs, Lt 159, 1910, par. 3
