Dear Son Willie:

Your letter is received. I did not suppose it necessary to write you all the particulars of the exact time we would be in Ballarat, as Elder Daniells came to Adelaide with the plans all laid as to what we were to do, and we accepted the situation exactly as planned. We thought this was all arranged and that we should leave Adelaide on Monday and, of course, arrive here the next morning, Elder Daniells to go on the same night. 7LtMs, Lt 88, 1892, par. 1

Brother and Sister James say, “Come right here. There is plenty of room, and two can sleep at Brother Henry’s or Sister King’s, a short distance from here, just around the corner.” So we hope it is all clear now. 7LtMs, Lt 88, 1892, par. 2

There seems to be considerable agitation on the Sabbath question. A minister, Porter, is making quite a decided movement on the question, and the brethren and sisters are anxious to have something said sustaining the Sabbath. They will be greatly disappointed if nothing is said in reference to this question. It looks to me that while the subject has been agitated, it is a good time to crowd in all the truth possible in reference to the matter. I wish you could have planned to come Thursday, but you will know what to say. I greatly wish Elder Starr could have come. I fear greatly for Elder Daniells. His neuralgia is getting to be a serious matter. May gave him treatment all of Tuesday afternoon, but treatment does not seem to relieve him much. 7LtMs, Lt 88, 1892, par. 3

We had a rainy day yesterday. Today is clear, but quite cool. I am as well as usual, although last night was a poor night for me. Well, we will see you soon. 7LtMs, Lt 88, 1892, par. 4

In much love. 7LtMs, Lt 88, 1892, par. 5
