Elder J. E. White

Dear Son Edson:

I have received your letters, and I write to assure you that, in harmony with what W. C. White has written to you, I will provide the means that may be necessary to secure and hold the property that you desired to rent in Mountain View, if you still feel sure you want it. I have made arrangements to receive a loan of some money from Sister Gotzian, and this I will receive as soon as it can be sent to her from Oregon. 22LtMs, Lt 164, 1907, par. 1

In many places I see great need for the investment of means in the cause of God. Next week I expect to return to Loma Linda, and while there I will do what I can to help forward the work in the surrounding cities. I desire to invest some means in the work in these places. I hope to find opportunity to speak to our people in that locality and to arouse them to a sense of their responsibility to hold up the light of truth. If, before I leave Loma Linda, I can see the right work begun, I shall not then feel pressed as a cart beneath sheaves after I return home. 22LtMs, Lt 164, 1907, par. 2

Mrs. Doctor Starr has been doing a good work in San Bernardino. She has been giving education in health principles and has found access to many fine homes. I hope to strengthen her hands and give her encouragement to continue the work in Redlands and Riverside. 22LtMs, Lt 164, 1907, par. 3

In a few weeks there is a camp-meeting at St. Helena, and I have promised to attend; so I must soon return home. 22LtMs, Lt 164, 1907, par. 4

Our church members need to arouse, that they may give the truth, putting forth every effort possible to make that truth appear in all its Bible strength. 22LtMs, Lt 164, 1907, par. 5
