Dear Children, Edson and Emma:

We are at your Aunt Caroline’s. They are situated upon a large prairie in a small house that is comfortable for this country. We think now of spending a couple of weeks in Colorado among the mountains. Caroline’s children live there and we think it would be as well for Father to be journeying, enjoying the scenery of the country. They all say it is a very healthy climate at Pike’s Peak. 2LtMs, Lt 9, 1872, par. 1

Father is about the same as usual. No special change. We shall stop at Denver, Colorado, perhaps two weeks. We wish you to write us there, but we will write you more definitely again. Write to us at Denver, for we shall want to hear from you there. Send your pictures, as many as eight or ten, and I will settle the bill. 2LtMs, Lt 9, 1872, par. 2

We stopped over Sabbath and first day at Civil Bend, Missouri. Had good meetings. I spoke Sunday afternoon in the grove, and all seemed interested. We hope the visit will result in good. 2LtMs, Lt 9, 1872, par. 3

In great haste, 2LtMs, Lt 9, 1872, par. 4

Your mother. 2LtMs, Lt 9, 1872, par. 5
