My dear son Willie:

I have just received your letter of two pages, written from Albuquerque, New Mexico. I was glad to hear from you. 25LtMs, Lt 120, 1910, par. 1

I have already written to you about our trip to the college. I enjoyed my visit very much, and the Lord blessed me with physical strength. On Sabbath I spoke for an hour without weariness. I spoke on the deliverance of the three Hebrews from the fiery furnace, and the Lord helped me to bring out the points clearly. The congregation was the most solemn one I have spoken to for a long time. My voice was clear and distinct, and while speaking I had not the least sense of weariness. The next morning I had a very interesting interview with Sister Irwin and her son and his wife. 25LtMs, Lt 120, 1910, par. 2

I am still writing on the book of Esther and am anxious to make all I possibly can of my time till the manuscript for the book between Patriarchs and Prophets and Desire of Ages is completed. 25LtMs, Lt 120, 1910, par. 3

I must now send this letter over to Maggie to be copied. With it I am sending you copies of letter to Edson and Dr. Kress. I had fully made up my mind, when I sent Dr. Kress my last letter, that it would not be just to myself or my work to write to him again. The thought came to my mind, “A man convinced against his will is of the same opinion still.” 25LtMs, Lt 120, 1910, par. 4

I am doing very well, and this morning rode as usual to the watering trough. I am much better than I expected to be after my trip. For this I praise the Lord. 25LtMs, Lt 120, 1910, par. 5
