Dear Son Willie:

I send an article to Fannie to prepare a copy to be sent to Professor Prescott, and I wish it could be put in shape to send where there are schools. I have had this matter written, much of it, for a long time and have just put a little addition to it, and I know it is essential. 7LtMs, Lt 77, 1892, par. 1

I have quite a number of letters to go, but shall not try to have them fitted up, for several have written me that when they could have the matter direct from my hand, it was far more forcible than after it had been prepared. It sounded like another thing, and as the matter is not designed for publication, I shall not send it to Fannie. I think Fannie feels that many of my expressions can be bettered, and she takes the life and point out of them. 7LtMs, Lt 77, 1892, par. 2

Yesterday we rode up into the mountains and took dinner under a tree. The scenery was grand. I enjoyed it much. It was uphill getting there, but quick returning. I became quite tired and had but little sleep that night. 7LtMs, Lt 77, 1892, par. 3

I am now trying to get off what I have written in regard to Mount Vernon Institute, and several things. I see our time is passing. Soon we will be away from here. Elder Daniells is visiting every day and doing his very utmost to bring around a different order of things. I think he is doing much good. We are all well. I am as well as could be expected. Hope to hear from you soon. 7LtMs, Lt 77, 1892, par. 4

In much love. 7LtMs, Lt 77, 1892, par. 5

Mother.

This must go into the mail at once. 7LtMs, Lt 77, 1892, par. 6
