Dear Brother and Sister Bond:

I know not what your relation is to Brother Fred Harmon, but I have open before me some things. I was in a meeting where you were present, and there seemed to be a great darkness, which prevailed after the meeting. There were a few assembled together. Brother Bond was talking to Brother Fred Harmon in a decided manner, pressing him to some decision. Brother Fred Harmon presented his case as unable to pay money due upon the place which he had purchased of you, and you were making statements of the case and demanding that which was your right. 9LtMs, Lt 95, 1894, par. 1

The Spirit of the Lord rested upon me, and I bore to you, my brother, a decided testimony, reading portions of Scripture to you: the words of Christ enshrouded in the pillowy cloud which are to express our gratitude to God for His mercy and goodness and love to the children of men, by acting that mercy and compassion and tenderness for the followers of Jesus Christ; read Deuteronomy 15. Dear brother, it pays to do right and it is a grievous blot on your name to do a wrong action to your brother. The Lord help you, my brother, to do right because it will be for your eternal interest to do right. 9LtMs, Lt 95, 1894, par. 2

In love. 9LtMs, Lt 95, 1894, par. 3
