July 2nd 1840
Dear Sir/
I was sorry I had not the pleasure of seeing you when you were at this place. I should have been glad to have had some conversation with you on the subject treated on in your letter, however as I had not that priviledge I shall give you such information on the subject as I think will be best.
From what I have seen of the Country and from the information I have had I think that — would be a very desireable place for a location for the saints, and consequently I should advise you to proceed in building your mill and making what other improvements you may think wisdom.
I shall reccommend the location to the brethren as they come along but do not think there will be many come until the fall or early next Spring.
I will do what I can to find a purchaser for your brothers house &c— I am sorry that he should feel so inemical to you and to the saints generally.
I probably shall have an oppertunity of seeing you before long when we can converse on these subjects &c &c &c [p. [1]]
