My Dear children Edson and Emma:

We are sorry to hear that Edson has met with so serious an accident. I have often found the application of eucalyptus leaves to a wounded part to be good in allaying inflammation and drawing out poison. 25LtMs, Lt 24, 1912, par. 1

Your mother is getting old; but she is not idle. We are at work on another book, getting together what I have written in past years on Bible history from the time of Solomon to the time of Christ. My workers hope soon to have this in book form. 25LtMs, Lt 24, 1912, par. 2

I ask you to read the fourteenth chapter of John and to study its lessons. We need to crowd into our lives all the comfort we possibly can. We need to dwell on the words of courage that Christ spoke to His disciples toward the close of His earthly ministry. The fourteenth and fifteenth chapters of John should be very precious to every believing heart. Though a cruel death was just before Him, Christ’s words to His followers were full of hope. He desired to bring all the comfort possible to their hearts. Let us be strong in Him. 25LtMs, Lt 24, 1912, par. 3

Let us hear from you as often as possible. I will try to write as often as I can. Do everything possible to keep in health. I bid you be of good courage in the Lord. May the Lord bless you and restore you to perfect health, is my prayer. 25LtMs, Lt 24, 1912, par. 4
