Dear Son Clarence White:

I have but a few moments to write before this must be walked off nearly one mile to the post office. 2LtMs, Lt 13, 1874, par. 1

I wish you to get one of the best of our sponges and take to the office wrapped in a paper, with our name written on the paper so that it may not be overlooked. Father sends order for a box of books to go in the same mail with this. 2LtMs, Lt 13, 1874, par. 2

We were up till near midnight last night. Brother Hager and wife and Brother and Sister Bowles-the two latter First-day Adventists. We had a social visit, then several letters had to be written after ten o’clock. 2LtMs, Lt 13, 1874, par. 3

Father is not quite as well. Has quite a severe attack of Dyspepsia. We are otherwise as well as usual. The continuous rains prevent our riding out as we would be glad to do. We had beautiful sunshine yesterday and it is pleasant today. I would like to have you write me in regard to your clothing. How are your shirts? Do they fit? I will write to Sister Haskell today in reference to them. 2LtMs, Lt 13, 1874, par. 4

In much love, 2LtMs, Lt 13, 1874, par. 5


Father says [to] see that there are one hundred plain envelopes sent to us in next [mail]. 2LtMs, Lt 13, 1874, par. 6

Ask Sister Abbey if she has anything to send. I have some things I sent for before. 2LtMs, Lt 13, 1874, par. 7
