Dear Willie:

If you send a box with testimonies and coats, will you please send some old cheap Bibles to cut up. And send to me a cheap Bible with plain print to use and handle on my table. I do not want to use my nice Bible that I speak from. 3LtMs, Lt 6, 1879, par. 1

Father wants Signs of the Times, written by Cummings. I think I brought it from California. My broadcloth short sack Lucinda says she sent by Edson to Colorado in a box, and Emma says Mary took it in her trunk. Will you please see if it is to be found anywhere. We are anxiously looking for testimonies. 3LtMs, Lt 6, 1879, par. 2

I wrote you a letter last night, but it did not go to office. Will now send this. You will receive both at the same time. 3LtMs, Lt 6, 1879, par. 3

I was glad for the shirts, for Father needs them. It was very poor policy spending time to fix up old shirts for him. Send my wrapper pattern and Father’s pants pattern and my sack pattern. My brown sack Sister Roth made was cut after this pattern. But don’t be particular about it. I can get one cut. The dressmaker cut me a pattern today. 3LtMs, Lt 6, 1879, par. 4


Send us one of each of the numbers of the Review for six weeks back. We have them not. Do not be so stingy of Reviews. Send us at least four numbers every week, that if we want to give to any one we can do so. 3LtMs, Lt 6, 1879, par. 5

Father says send his leather boots; send Bibles, old one, coarse print, if you can find them. Pick up Bibles among brethren. He means not the very finest print pocket Bibles, but print that we can read and the printers can read. Father says send us one dozen or more annuals. 3LtMs, Lt 6, 1879, par. 6
