From Emily Campbell, Mrs. White’s secretary, but containing an Ellen White letter. Previously unpublished.

Dear Brother:

Sister White read me just a few lines of your last letter. And it was about Bro. Smith sending to Oakland for your mail. This seemed strange and we could not fully understand it. We thought there was a mistake. 8LtMs, Lt 87, 1893, par. 1

During the months of March and February Fannie Bolton was having vacation, and we feared the papers were not supplied with a sufficient number of articles. Therefore it was decided that they (Review) publish the articles we sent you and Bro. Colcord. We wrote three letters in regard to this matter; one we sent to you requesting you to hand the articles to the editor of the Review, and one we sent to Bro. Colcord requesting him to hand the article that was sent to him to the editor of the Review, for publication. And the third letter we sent to the editor of the Review which was as follows:— 8LtMs, Lt 87, 1893, par. 2

Dear Brother:

Please get the following articles from Elder S. N. Haskell and W. A. Colcord, and publish them: 8LtMs, Lt 87, 1893, par. 3

“Liberality Fruit of Love.”
“Sin of Ananias.”
“Duty in Ministering to the Poor.”
8LtMs, Lt 87, 1893, par. 4

The above were sent to Elder Haskell by last mail; and the article entitled, “Should Christians be Members of Secret Societies” was sent to W. A. Colcord by last mail. In the rush of sending the last mail we did not consider about the publishing of these articles; but now we think it advisable to have them published. 8LtMs, Lt 87, 1893, par. 5

Yours truly, 8LtMs, Lt 87, 1893, par. 6

Ellen G. White

Hoping this may explain the matter, we remain 8LtMs, Lt 87, 1893, par. 7

Yours respectfully, 8LtMs, Lt 87, 1893, par. 8
