Dear Sister Sarah:

I would be pleased to have you send me the account of our expenses that have been incurred since we left Battle Creek to our return to Oakland. I wish to put it in my book. Do not delay this, please. 4LtMs, Lt 37, 1884, par. 1

I have a nice tooth brush somewhere. Do you know where it is? There is one box, I am satisfied, we have not received. Those large cloth shoes, buttoned on the side, have not come. Those goods that I bought did not come. There are several things that I expected to find that are not here. What about that large piece of white oil cloth such as we have for tablecloths? I had one in Battle Creek, sewed together, but it is not here. Was it packed at all? It was new, had never been used. Was made to cover our wagon. Will you please see if any box is in Oakland? I suppose there is, as the doll is not here that we fixed for Ella [White]. 4LtMs, Lt 37, 1884, par. 2

Please give me this statement of account. I want the address of Byron Belden, Stephen Belden, and Charlie Belden. You had these. Please send them to me. 4LtMs, Lt 37, 1884, par. 3

I am writing every day. Mean to get my book finished next month, and can scarcely write a letter, I am so intent on this matter. 4LtMs, Lt 37, 1884, par. 4

Love to yourself and your friends whose acquaintance we made on the journey. 4LtMs, Lt 37, 1884, par. 5
