Dear Son Willie:

Elder Van Horn has returned from Grand Rapids. He says that there is no backing out from Grand Rapids. The Good Templars have published notices for me to speak in the Good Templars’ Hall Sunday afternoon at three p.m. They have gone broadcast and it has been published that I will speak Sabbath at ten a.m. in some hall. So we leave here for Grand Rapids tomorrow noon. There is a waiting at Ionia two hours, and an appointment was solicited by them at Ionia for a meeting. Van Horn left an appointment, so we are in for it. Will write you again soon after we get to Grand Rapids. 7LtMs, Lt 66, 1891, par. 1

I am feeling better today but my head cannot endure the heat of stoves. We have had a very strong wind today. The dust has been flying like a cloud. It has been a very strong wind. 7LtMs, Lt 66, 1891, par. 2

Brother and Sister Starr have made some important acquaintances and have made quite a stir. I am glad they are going to Petoskey, for I think they will be the right ones in the right place. 7LtMs, Lt 66, 1891, par. 3

I took dinner at Brother Maynard’s. They are just as kind and good and true as ever. George makes no profession of religion. Joseph loves the truth. 7LtMs, Lt 66, 1891, par. 4

Brother Fargo went to Petoskey today. He very much wanted we should be there on the ground [so] that we could consult together. I shall pray the Lord to guide them in Petoskey, and to guide me and strengthen me to do His holy will. 7LtMs, Lt 66, 1891, par. 5

Shall be glad to meet you again and talk with you. 7LtMs, Lt 66, 1891, par. 6
