Dear Willie:

Why not take Mary with you to California, cheap fare, and you both work together? It would be far easier for you both, and let Lucinda be relieved from the strain upon her. She is getting worn. She can spend one year or a few months at least away from the work and go back to it fresh again. We shall need her help in California and to travel with me next camp meeting season. She can be a great help to me. 3LtMs, Lt 9, 1879, par. 1

You can both visit us and then go on your way to California. Think of this. Mary is needed there much to help you, I think. Study over this matter. Pray over it and decide accordingly. I think next fall, from the light that I have had, you both should commence your efforts in Old England. But you will read this written to Elder A. and understand more and more clearly in regard to matters. 3LtMs, Lt 9, 1879, par. 2

I sent you a little sample of gray water-proof. I want one yard if it can be matched; if not, all right. 3LtMs, Lt 9, 1879, par. 3

Mother.
