Dear Brother Olsen and Willie:

Our people are attending the meetings being held by those assembled here and they are greatly pleased. Elder Corliss says he never heard sermons equal to some that he has heard here. I wish you could both be here. There is plenty of room for you in the house and when our tent comes we shall have things remarkable to our minds. We get along very well. 6LtMs, Lt 66, 1890, par. 1

Emma, Sara, Edna and Marian attend meetings a great deal, often staying all day. I wish you were here. I think you ought to be here. It will cost you but little because we will cook for you and provide the eatables. Salisbury will provide the room. Only bring some blankets and ticks and pillows for yourselves. 6LtMs, Lt 66, 1890, par. 2

I have succeeded in getting horse and carriage—carriage with two seats in it and you can ride all you wish. Do come. I want you to get all you can from these meetings. I go for the first time, today, to hear Mrs. Livermore who is a grand, good speaker, they say. 6LtMs, Lt 66, 1890, par. 3

I will not write more now. Sent letters yesterday. 6LtMs, Lt 66, 1890, par. 4


I tell you there is talent here. They have Bible teaching every morning by the most spiritual and best minister among them and many grand things are brought out. 6LtMs, Lt 66, 1890, par. 5
