Dear Brother and Sister Simpson:

I received a letter from Sister Simpson a few days ago. I can only write a short letter in reply. I hope you will not be discouraged, but put your whole trust in your Saviour. I have not heard from you for a long time, but I have thought about you and hoped you were prospering. 24LtMs, Lt 156, 1909, par. 1

I have been wonderfully sustained since the General Conference in Washington. For five months we were traveling and holding meetings. I endured the work very well. Once or twice I had considerable suffering; but in answer to prayer the Lord helped me, and now I am preparing matter to go out to the people. 24LtMs, Lt 156, 1909, par. 2

I can only write you a short letter now, and say to you: Be strong; yea, be strong in faith and hope. Do your best in the fear and love of God to save perishing souls. There is enough to do in every place; and if you put your trust in the Lord, He will respond to your prayers and give you His grace. Take hold by faith and hold fast to the One who has invited you to look unto Him, who is the Author and Finisher of your faith. 24LtMs, Lt 156, 1909, par. 3
