Dear Son Willie:

I am now packing up my writings. I shall be so thankful to meet you in Ballarat. It seems quite a long time since I have seen you. I am seeking to get off the mail, and I have had to go to the dentist twice; one tooth troubles me some. 7LtMs, Lt 87, 1892, par. 1

What day will you be at Ballarat? Brother Daniells will let Emily have his ticket, and he take hers, and she go on direct to Melbourne. Elder Daniells will see me housed somewhere. We feared you would not be on hand, but be sure I shall be pleased to see you and have you remain with me until I return to Melbourne. I am rushing Emily as fast as I can on copy to put in mail for America. 7LtMs, Lt 87, 1892, par. 2

I do wish you could have been here to have made some visits and get acquainted with some of our people. I know you could have been a help to them. 7LtMs, Lt 87, 1892, par. 3

I am very busy all the time. One thing rushes upon the heels of another. We had a very windy and cold spell for two days. It looks like rain today. I hope you will be of good courage in the Lord. It is very poor policy to lose hope and courage, and we will not be guilty of such folly. 7LtMs, Lt 87, 1892, par. 4

There is plenty of work to do, and we have a mighty Worker with us. We must obey His orders. I hope in God. There is nowhere else we can look. 7LtMs, Lt 87, 1892, par. 5

Elder Starr will, I understand, be with you. I shall be more than pleased to see you both. I have many jots and tittles to write so I will say goodbye. 7LtMs, Lt 87, 1892, par. 6
