Dear Willie:

I thought I would drop you a line. If this Brother Caswell or Brother Hanson, leaves my work to go to Sydney, will you please send up someone or make arrangements for someone from here to take their place in doing the hard work of clearing for orchard? Shall we not want a good plow to break the land at once, and prepare for the trees? Will you please to consider these things? I was too tired when I arrived to think much, and am now to weary someone else. Mosely said the orchard ought to be all prepared and trees put in in a couple of weeks. Now will you consider this? Send us additional men if you know of any to send, or we shall be one year behind. What shall we do? I am really troubled over this matter. 10LtMs, Lt 147, 1895, par. 1

It takes a good deal of hard work to take out these big trees. Fences must be made. If Vincent does not come now, we shall not need him in one month, for we shall set unbelievers on the job of fence-making and building stable and cow sheds. I write this now to go this morning. Considerable has been done. 10LtMs, Lt 147, 1895, par. 2

Mosely says that the land is good for fruit just where selected, and will do well if properly worked. Caldwell says he would not take ten pounds for the information he received from him. He thinks he may borrow a plow from the school just now. So I leave this. But the orchard is the main thing now. 10LtMs, Lt 147, 1895, par. 3

I shall try to get this to the office this morning. 10LtMs, Lt 147, 1895, par. 4
