Beloved Brethren and Joseph, by the permit of my companion I  write a line to show that I have not forgotten you, neither do I forget you for  my prayer is to my Heavenly Father for your deliverance; It seems as though  the Lord was slow to hear the prayers of the Saints, but the Lord’s ways, are not like  our ways, therefore he can do better than ourselves; you must be comforted Bro   & J. and look forward for better days; your little ones are as playful as  little lambs, be comforted concerning them, for they are not cast down as  and sorrowful as we are; their sorrows are but momentary, and ours contin ual. May the Lord bless, protect, and deliver you from all your enemies,  and restore you to the bosom of your families, is the prayer of .
