Dear Brother and Sister Haskell:

We shall be pleased to see you again and to have the matter of the school location decided. 23LtMs, Lt 314, 1908, par. 1

There is one thing I wish to say to you; it is this: Make no effort to have Sister Gotzian withdraw her money from the Paradise Valley Sanitarium, for there is no place that needs more the help of means than Paradise Valley. Loans and donations will be needed to carry the work of that institution as it should be carried. Yesterday I wrote an urgent appeal for gifts and donations for this work. 23LtMs, Lt 314, 1908, par. 2

Unless help is given to the institution, I fear that Brother and Sister Cummings will become discouraged, and I do not know whom we could get to take their place. 23LtMs, Lt 314, 1908, par. 3

We have had no word from you since you left. I hope you are not sick. We have remembered you by name at the throne of grace and prayed that you might have a special blessing at the meetings near Nashville. Let there be a diligent seeking of the Lord, that souls may be refined and purified and sanctified, and the Lord will use them to His name’s glory. The matter of the school here in California needs to be wisely managed, that the enemy may gain no advantage of us. We hope you will return as soon as possible. 23LtMs, Lt 314, 1908, par. 4
