Dear Brother:

I enclose in this letter to you a copy of a letter to W. F. Caldwell. I will explain so you will understand my reason for sending it to you. I suppose you know why this Bro. Caldwell came to these Colonies. Well, he is in the dark and we are trying to help him. Please read the letter I have written him, and that will give you some idea. 8LtMs, Lt 91, 1893, par. 1

I received a telegram from him last week, from Melbourne, and he said he was waiting for me to advise him. We telegraphed back for him to wait in Melbourne, and that I would send letter. But I afterward received a long letter from him which he expected that I would have received a few days sooner than I did. In his letter he gave me instruction to telegraph an answer to him before the ninth, as he was expecting to leave Melbourne the ninth on his homeward journey to America. 8LtMs, Lt 91, 1893, par. 2

If he heeded my telegram, he is in Melbourne yet. But fearing he may not have heeded it, we enclose a copy of a letter to him in this letter addressed to you; and we shall be indeed thankful to you if you will take it to the boat next Sabbath, when it arrives in Auckland from Sydney. Or if you can find his name on the list of steerage passengers on the American steamer to San Francisco, you could address it to him. We should prefer to have you hand it to him if it is possible 8LtMs, Lt 91, 1893, par. 3

This brother is terribly in the dark (he seems like a good man but is deluded), and we are trying to help him. I have written two articles on this subject which will appear in print ere long. We are sorry to trouble you. 8LtMs, Lt 91, 1893, par. 4

Yours truly. 8LtMs, Lt 91, 1893, par. 5
