Dear Friend:

Your letter is received, and I thank you for your response. I designed to say in my letter to you that if you would help defray one-half the expense, I would pay the balance. I will accept your promise on the conditions you specify, and I will advance the money to Carrie for I am anxious she shall have an entire change and shall have opportunities and privileges which she seems very desirous to obtain. 8LtMs, Lt 84, 1893, par. 1

I fear if she misses this term she will not be able to work and will become discouraged. I shall immediately write to her and tell her my plans. 8LtMs, Lt 84, 1893, par. 2

I have already pledged $5,000 (one hundred pounds str.) to give several of the most promising canvassers the next term of school. They will not be able to obtain the advantages of the coming term unless I do this. They will not be expected to do the most efficient work without proper education and training. 8LtMs, Lt 84, 1893, par. 3

This has been one line of work in which I have had a special interest. For many years in America, I have created a fund to be used in educating young men and young women that gave promise of properly representing the truth. 8LtMs, Lt 84, 1893, par. 4

With Respect. 8LtMs, Lt 84, 1893, par. 5
