Dear brethren Santee and Moran,—

I wish to say to you that I was in deep thought in regard to the location of the Sanitarium in Southern California. We were in council, and the matter of locating the Sanitarium at Long Beach was being discussed, when One of authority said, You will make a mistake if you select that place. It is not a favorable place for invalids. The winds are objectionable. Take time to make full investigation, and in no case locate the Sanitarium in a place where the sea breeze blows as strongly as at Long Beach. 16LtMs, Lt 143, 1901, par. 1

I write you this that you may understand the matter. This is light from the Lord. Do not rush into the undertaking to repent at your leisure. 16LtMs, Lt 143, 1901, par. 2
