[W. C. White]:

[First four pages missing.] Today I am not feeling very well because I am tired, but I enjoy the air here very much. I must tell you there is a wonderful sight of noise going on below. Brother and Sister Salisbury, Sarah and Edna went down street and purchased a large nest of dry goods boxes. Sarah had seven and Brother Salisbury half a dozen I think, and Sarah is now sawing her shelves and preparing her calligraph boxes for use. These will compose our bureau, washstands, sideboards, and many necessary things. We can hire a cookstove as long as we wish, and a small parlor stove, for four dollars brought to the house and taken back again. Wire, woven cots are as cheap here as in Battle Creek. 7LtMs, Lt 70, 1891, par. 1

Our trunks did not come through yesterday. I think we will get them today. We want a tent. Have sent for it to Brother Cornell. We must be by ourselves in table fare and the house is good and convenient, for which we are very grateful. We think we will do well. Dr. Lay was in to see us today. He is so glad we have come. We may have some meetings but I have no time to write more. 7LtMs, Lt 70, 1891, par. 2

May the Lord put His Spirit upon you is my prayer. 7LtMs, Lt 70, 1891, par. 3
