President Joseph Smith,
Dear sir:—I feel anxious to express  my feelings, concerning the business  transactions between the church and my self;—as it is well known to many, that  , as agent for the church,  purchased my farm while I was living in  Brandywine township, Chester co. Pa,  and many supposed or pretended to sup pose, I would get nothing in return;— but I wish to say to all my old friends and  enemies in , through the  medium of the “Times and Seasons,”— -[which I rejoice you now have the control  of,]- that I have received my pay in full  from the church of Jesus Christ of Latter  Day Saints, through yourself, sir, as their  Trustee in Trust, according to the original  contract; and that from my acquaintance  with yourself, and those brethren who  are assisting you in the great and increas ing business of the church, I have the  fullest confidence in all the transactions  of the church, and I request those papers  in who published concerning  my sale and loss, with such bitter la mentations to publish this also. I am,  sir, your brother and well wisher,
ROBERT PIERCE [Peirce].
