I have written out some things of which I desire you to have a copy, but fear I shall not be able to get a copy. Fannie came down with influenza a day or two ago, and Emily has been giving her treatment. My cook, Maud Camp was not well, and went home yesterday for a rest of one or two weeks.

Let me tell you, Brother Jones, that in this house there are no idlers. All have to meet their responsibilities and do their utmost. Such constant work, and taking so many copies, wears out our machines, and, do the best we can, new machines have to be purchased. But there is no let up to my work, no respite for me; and my workers share the burdens I carry.

E. G. White: That would be a splendid thing. There are more ways than one to get in, and there are more ways than one that the devil will work to keep out; and we have got to consider that the devil is working. There are so many of our brethren that—or quite a number of our brethren—you know, like A. T. Jones, and these other men, that have gone off; they need not have gone. They took themselves off. Nobody drove them away. Well, we will do the best we can.
