My dear Son:

Sara has just brought me the copy you sent of your letter to W. C. White, and I will say in response that I am all prepared for this emergency of which you write. That which I have written is in Willie’s hands, and he will take it with him to the Denver meeting. 22LtMs, Lt 262, 1907, par. 1

Last night I awoke with a heavy burden on my soul. I left my bed and thought I would write out what had been presented to me concerning the work in Colorado. Then I thought, I have already written fully on this matter and have placed it in the hands of W. C. White. 22LtMs, Lt 262, 1907, par. 2

Willie left last Friday for Fresno and is probably at Los Angeles now. From Los Angeles he goes to Denver. 22LtMs, Lt 262, 1907, par. 3

I have been showing that the men who have been encouraging Dr. Place in his work of opposition are doing Satan’s work. The Lord now calls for a reform. He bids that this miserable work of rivalry be brought to a close. God will not permit Elder Wilcox to be overcome. 22LtMs, Lt 262, 1907, par. 4

I have a large amount of precious matter, written at Cooranbong, and dated, Dec. 20, 1896, which is just what is needed at this time. I will have it copied today and, if it is possible, get it off in the evening mail. I had lost all trace of these manuscripts, but this morning a pile of copies attracted my attention which, on looking over, I found to my surprise to be just what I wanted. 22LtMs, Lt 262, 1907, par. 5

I shall not dare to attend the camp-meeting, but the message God has sent for His people will still come to them. Tell Brother Wilcox that although he has not written me any word, the Lord has directed me in this time of emergency and has instructed me what I should do. 22LtMs, Lt 262, 1907, par. 6

Trusting in the Lord God of Israel. 22LtMs, Lt 262, 1907, par. 7
