Dear Brother and Sister Vuilleumier:

When we returned home we found Christine [Dahl] had been quite sick and is still feeble. As she was anxious to see something of Switzerland before she returned to Norway when we shall go, we thought she might spend a few days pleasantly at your place. I wish she could stop a day or two at Tramelan, but this cannot be. I am anxious she shall receive benefit by this change. I consider her a faithful Christian girl, and I wish her to accompany us to Sweden and cook for us during the conference there, if she is able to do so. Therefore I have thought best for her to go to you for a few days. I suffered much after I left you; I was a great sufferer all the way to Basel, but I stopped at the dentist—he gave me relief speedily. 4LtMs, Lt 118, 1886, par. 1

With much love to the entire family, yours with much love. 4LtMs, Lt 118, 1886, par. 2
