Elmshaven, St. Helena Sanitarium, California, October 29, 1907
I have slept quite well until past two o'clock. My mind is active. I cannot sleep as many hours as I would [like]. [I would] be so thankful if I could sleep. 16MR 134.3
Elder Ballenger, Sister Gotzian, W. C. White, and I had quite a lengthy talk concerning Paradise Valley Sanitarium. Will it be wisdom to turn it over to the conference now [that] the buildings are well prepared for convenience to give thorough treatment? We are the persons who have invested in the sanitarium, and at first they were unwilling to take it, but we think now that they will be willing. We then united in prayer, and then it was my bedtime. Took my bath and went to bed, and after a period of wakefulness, slept. The stars are shining brightly, and there is no fog or appearance of rain. 16MR 134.4
I am earnestly seeking the Lord. I must have His grace and rich light in order to understand the will of the Lord. We cannot afford to make one mistake now, and why should we? I am reading Ezekiel 20.—Manuscript 156, 1907. 16MR 135.1
