To the Managers of the Pacific Press Publishing House:

Will you please to publish and handle the small cook book by Sister Colcord? Brother and Sister Colcord seem to think that if I were to write and advise you to publish this book, you would do it. I think it would be as profitable as many other books which have been published and highly exalted, but which mean simply nothingness. I therefore, in behalf of Brother Colcord, who is seeking to send his children to school, and to aid the work of God as a preacher of the Word and by gifts to the various enterprises that are constantly being created through the advancement of the work in this new country, ask that you will publish this book. I see no objection in your taking this book, as you have many other books, and handling it in behalf of the interests of your brother, as you have done for others. It is a cheap book, costing the purchaser only one shilling. 14LtMs, Lt 106, 1899, par. 1

In haste. 14LtMs, Lt 106, 1899, par. 2
