Dear Sister Hall:

I have written to Edson quite fully. You will without doubt see it all. We know not just when we may go into the Park. I have written Edson to come to Colorado on his way East. If he can spend a few weeks here, all of us, and make this our Jerusalem where we may be endued with power from on high, it will be profitable to us all. 3LtMs, Lt 43, 1878, par. 1

I find Father every way improved. It is cool here all the time. My heart troubles me some, but not as much as I feared. 3LtMs, Lt 43, 1878, par. 2

I spoke last Sunday night at Boulder City to a very fine congregation—a tent full. They all listened with intense interest. Father is himself again in almost all things. He is always cheerful. 3LtMs, Lt 43, 1878, par. 3

I hasten to write this with haste to get to the office. 3LtMs, Lt 43, 1878, par. 4

I dare not go to the Eastern camp meetings, for I am not well, neither am I sick, but I dare not venture to enter into hard labor. I shall write what I can and shall take hold in the meetings in this new field. We came just in the right time. 3LtMs, Lt 43, 1878, par. 5

My speaking in Boulder City gave a spring to the work and silenced the opposition in a great degree. I speak again next Sunday. 3LtMs, Lt 43, 1878, par. 6

I wish you would send us half dozen copies of the Signs. Send by mail three copies of my Volume 3, also half dozen copies of pamphlets No. 3 of Spirit of Prophecy. We found Father or Willie has no books, no papers for distribution. Send one package of those square envelopes, thick paper. Father says he has sent for papers so that you need not send mine in addition. 3LtMs, Lt 43, 1878, par. 7

This is a missionary field in every sense of the word, but the people are a reading people, and publications or papers to distribute while the living preacher is among them will be of the highest service. 3LtMs, Lt 43, 1878, par. 8
