Sister Hall:

Last night I had a dream that made quite an impression on my mind. I thought that the young man who has often appeared to me and instructed me came in the room where I was and inquired, “Who is helping you in your work?” I said, “No one.” 3LtMs, Lt 47, 1877, par. 1

Said he, “The Lord gave you one to be with you and help you. He gave her wisdom and tact to be your helper. Why was she separated from you?” 3LtMs, Lt 47, 1877, par. 2

I tried to think about it and answered, “It was thought best for her to connect with the office upon the Pacific coast.” 3LtMs, Lt 47, 1877, par. 3

Said he, “God fitted her to be your helper. Be careful whom you select to connect with you. It is God’s work. He has made your hearts one. In her is the help you want. She will not be sustained in the work in which she is now engaged, for it is not the work God has given her to do. God raised her up for you. She should have been with you, her interest and yours one. Draw her to you again. The Lord will impress her heart. She has not the education of schools, but God has given her wisdom to help you in your work. You should be as one heart and one soul. God has bound you together. Let no influence divide you.” 3LtMs, Lt 47, 1877, par. 4

I want you to come and see me. I do not want any one with you, but just our two selves. When shall I send for you? I must have some talk with you, before I make any move. 3LtMs, Lt 47, 1877, par. 5
