Dear Brother:

I send the enclosed article for your mother and all the Wessels family. They need these words. I have tried to write to you also. Will you please make this matter clear to Mother Wessels. If she is not very guarded, she will send the means which belongs to God into the enemy’s lines, and then what? She will obtain no blessing; she will receive no reward, and may lose every dollar. She is not safe in misappropriating the Lord’s goods. I do not want her to manage the goods entrusted to her so as to bring loss to herself, for so it will be eventually if she does not invest her means in such a way as to bring proper returns to the Lord. 14LtMs, Lt 114, 1899, par. 1

I hope you and Mother Wessels will not put your money into buildings, thinking to make money. The safest way to make money is to lay it up in the bank of heaven. The wisest circulation of your means you will find in spending it to do good and add souls to the cause of God. 14LtMs, Lt 114, 1899, par. 2

I am very anxious that Mother Wessels and Andrew shall visit us. We think it would be well for them to change their associations. We want to see Andrew moving solidly in the lines of duty. 14LtMs, Lt 114, 1899, par. 3
