Elder Loughborough:

I have just enclosed in an envelope a letter to you in regard to Elder Daniels. 6LtMs, Lt 51, 1890, par. 1

Now I send you this testimony, which you see by date I wrote in Burrough Valley. I gave orders for a copy to be sent to Brother Cady but I have not had a response. Perhaps he did not receive it. I do not know his address. I want you to get some one to copy the manuscript for you to keep, for you may need this to use to warn others off from the enchanted ground of mining stocks and land speculations. 6LtMs, Lt 51, 1890, par. 2

You can after copying the testimony, send it with [the] copied manuscript to Brother Cady. 6LtMs, Lt 51, 1890, par. 3

I hope the Lord will give you wisdom to move judiciously in reference to these trying matters. The Lord will. I believe He will. 6LtMs, Lt 51, 1890, par. 4

The manuscript in my own handwriting I have no copy of, for we are all sick here. Some are recovering. Willie is having a high fever but will not break away from his work. Poor boy, he is just using himself up. 6LtMs, Lt 51, 1890, par. 5

Please send me copy of this written tonight to Cady. I have a copy of the calligraph manuscript. I hope I have made everything plain and clear. I am just burdened night and day with these things that need to be promptly met and set in order. We need great meekness and patience and the love of Jesus in order to move wisely. 6LtMs, Lt 51, 1890, par. 6
