Dear Brother and Sister Haskell,—

Yesterday, Wednesday, W. C. White, Clarence, Sara, Maggie, and I left St. Helena for San Francisco, there to take the cars for Los Angeles, to attend the camp-meeting. While waiting in Oakland I began to write a letter to you, which will be sent with this. My mind was drawn out to speak expressly of the duty of church members to draw together in the service of God, though all have not the same office or the same talents. Christ gives different men different abilities, to be exercised in different lines of work. Some are strong to carry on one line of work, while others are especially fitted to carry on another line, or to labor in a different way to accomplish the same result. Let no worker feel that his fellow workers should labor in exactly the same way that he does. 17LtMs, Lt 140, 1902, par. 1
