Dear Brother and Sister Haskell:

I could sleep but little last night and felt used up in the morning. Lt142-1910.1

I was so thankful, the Lord Jesus in the night season seemed close to me, and said, in most impressive words: “Let not your heart be troubled; ye believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you: I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto Myself; that where I am, there ye may be also. And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know.” [John 14:1-4.] Lt142-1910.2

Oh, what comfort came to my soul! Lt142-1910.3

Now I was instructed: We will be diligent, watch to see what words we speak; and if the enemy can make us discouraged, to utter one syllable of harshness or discouragement, Satan’s object is gained. Now let no reference be made to the position of Elder Daniells or Elder Prescott’s position, but let us be uplifted in the Lord. Let us not take time to separate the words of these men, but plan in regard to our work, and encourage the workers, and talk cheerfully; for the blessing of the Lord will be with us, if we do this. Lt142-1910.4

I will write more fully today of some things the Lord has instructed me. Nothing would please the enemy more than to have us bear a gloomy testimony. Uplift the Saviour, talk courage, talk faith, and show forth the praises of God. Will write again today. Lt142-1910.5
