Dear Son Edson:

I am sorry that I have not letters written to you with my own hand, but I send copies that will interest you. I want you to be of good courage and have strong faith in God. Keep your eye fixed upon Jesus. He is the Author and Finisher of your faith. Keep on the Christian armor, prepared for battle at all times and in all places. Sara is waiting for this. I received no letter from you this month. I am disappointed, but such things will happen and therefore I will not worry. Next mail I hope to be able to write more fully. You will see by copies that I have had an immense sight of writing to do for Melbourne, South Africa, and Battle Creek. 12LtMs, Lt 170, 1897, par. 1

Be of good courage in the Lord. Your only safety is in keeping the eye single to the glory of God. He will be with us. In much love to you and Emma, 12LtMs, Lt 170, 1897, par. 2


Write me often as possible. If I could only see you and converse with you! 12LtMs, Lt 170, 1897, par. 3
