7 I will say to all the saints, that I desired,  with exceeding great desire, to have address ed them from the stand, on the subject of bap tism for the dead, on the following Sabbath.—  But inasmuch as it is out of my power to do  so, I will write the word of the Lord from  [blank] time to time, on that subject, and send  it you by mail, as well as many other things.

9 Behold, my prayer to God is, that you  all may be saved. And I subscribe myself  your servant in the Lord, prophet and seer of  the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day  Saints.
JOSEPH SMITH.
