Dear Brethren Cady and Lucas,—

I have had my attention called to Brother Herbert Lacey’s situation. He has been asked to go to England and take up work in that field. I understand that from the time of his leaving New Zealand to the time of his taking up work in this field, a period of six weeks, he received no remuneration whatever. I think that he should receive wages for this time, and that the money should be taken from the Christ’s Object Lesson Fund. I cannot but advise that Brother Lacey be reimbursed from this fund. Please talk with him about this, and make matters straight with him. 19LtMs, Lt 135, 1904, par. 1

I feel perfectly clear in this matter. Traveling from place to place means increased expense. When Brother Lacey left New Zealand, he sold his household goods at a sacrifice. He will have to sell his goods here before he leaves and will be obliged to buy again when he reaches London. Please do all you can to help him to dispose of his goods satisfactorily. 19LtMs, Lt 135, 1904, par. 2

I feel thankful that Christ’s Object Lessons can be used to help out in cases like this. It is but just and right that it should be done. 19LtMs, Lt 135, 1904, par. 3
