Elder J. E. White

My dear Son:

I have been shown that we must not let the Nashville sanitarium sink into discouragement, but must come to its help in its time of necessity. And Nashville must have help at once. Nashville is a city where the work of the Lord is to be carried forward with success. 25LtMs, Lt 40, 1912, par. 1

I can write but little at this time, for I am writing by lamplight. Let those who are interested in this work put forth their best efforts and do it now. Be of good courage, Edson. The Lord is rich in resources. It would cause great triumph with some if the work at Nashville should fail; for this would throw many important interests into uncertainty. Never write failure; but let all take hold of this work, determined to do their best. Those who stand aloof from this work are not fulfilling the requirements of God. 25LtMs, Lt 40, 1912, par. 2

I have read a great deal today. Goodnight. 25LtMs, Lt 40, 1912, par. 3
