Dear and Beloved Sister in Jesus Christ:

I send you in this mail a letter to Sister Carle and to the little girl Miller that gave the ten cents. I thought, you see, that they had these letters. I was requested by Brother Irwin to write to these two in particular. I have done so. 14LtMs, Lt 247, 1899, par. 1

I wish often you were with us to act as matron of my home. We should prize you highly as matron of our Health Retreat. I do want to see you so much, but this cannot be. I do not want you to leave the Health Retreat in California until the time the Lord would have you take up work in another place. 14LtMs, Lt 247, 1899, par. 2

I am doing more writing than I have ever done in my life. I am often up at twelve at night and at one and two o’clock in the morning. I would be so glad to bear my testimony in California once more. I am always glad to hear from you. You have many letters from me in the papers. I get nothing from you unless you write. I leave for Queensland tomorrow to attend camp meeting in Toowoomba, several hours’ ride short of Brisbane, where the camp meeting was held last year. Our school term has closed and the blessing of the Lord was with us in the exercises. 14LtMs, Lt 247, 1899, par. 3

But I must close. 14LtMs, Lt 247, 1899, par. 4
