MR No. 637—Ellen White and the Discarding of Butter

As a family we consulted together as to how we could reduce expenses; but we found we could not do much in the food line. Butter was very high, so we decided that we would not place butter on our table.—Letter 54a, 1894, p. 2. (To Brother Olsen, June 24, 1894.) 8MR 386.1

You see we have a large family, and it takes some provision to satisfy our wants. We have been studying how we can economize. The only thing I decided we could give up was butter. This has been banished from the table; we use no flesh meats nor butter.—Letter 46, 1894, pp. 2, 3. (To Dr. J. H. Kellogg, May 17, 1894.) 8MR 386.2
