Dear Brother and Sister Rice:

I have read a copy of the letter which Elder Knox wrote to you August 8, suggesting that you labor some in Alameda. 22LtMs, Lt 256, 1907, par. 1

I am glad hat Elder Knox has made this proposition. I see no reason why you should not accept it and show yourselves willing to undertake the thing which he proposes. This opens the door for you for ministry on the Sabbath, and it makes of none effect the action of those who have not been willing to harmonize with you. I hope you will think best to act upon this suggestion. There should always be on our part a willingness to concede to the requests and wishes of our brethren. You know that if this proposition is rejected by you that the impression will go forth that you do not seek to harmonize with your brethren. There are stormy times before us, and we must draw together. 22LtMs, Lt 256, 1907, par. 2

I have not been strong since the St. Helena camp-meeting, and I have not written many letters. During the last few days the Lord has given me strength to write some things to be read at the camp-meetings in Los Angeles and Denver. 22LtMs, Lt 256, 1907, par. 3

Tomorrow morning Willie goes to Sacramento; then to Fresno, and after the Sabbath, on to Los Angeles. Elder Daniells has telegraphed him to attend the meeting in Denver, and I suppose he will have to go. 22LtMs, Lt 256, 1907, par. 4

I shall be glad to hear from you regarding your welfare and the progress of your work. 22LtMs, Lt 256, 1907, par. 5
