Dear children Edson and Emma,—

Maggie has just come in to tell me that the mail must go in ten minutes. I shall try to write you a few lines, in answer to the letter which I received from you yesterday. I have decided to attend the Conference, because of special impressions made on my mind last night. I had decided not to go, but I dare not now hold to this. If my health continues to be as good as it is now, I shall attend. 18LtMs, Lt 33, 1903, par. 1

I agree with what you say in regard to the importance of your work at Nashville, and I shall not urge you to come to Conference; for you would have to leave work essential to be done. I am thankful for the change in the work in Nashville. I rejoice that as a result of the meeting held there, the outlook is more favorable. Do not let the enemy have any chance to counteract the good that has been done. 18LtMs, Lt 33, 1903, par. 2

Today I am sending you some copies. Please use wise judgment in the use you make of them. 18LtMs, Lt 33, 1903, par. 3

Remember me to Brother W. O. Palmer and his wife. Tell them that I mention them often in my prayers. Encourage all to have hope and courage in the Lord. Be of good cheer, and do not forget to praise the Lord for His blessings. 18LtMs, Lt 33, 1903, par. 4

In much love to you both. 18LtMs, Lt 33, 1903, par. 5
