Dear Sir
I received your kind present by the hand  of & feel myself under many obligations for  this mark of your esteem & friendship which to  me is the more interesting as it unfolds & developes  many things that are of great importance to this gen eration & corresponds with & supports the testimony  of the Book of Mormon; I have read the volumnes  with the greatest interest & pleasure & must say that  of all histories that have been written pertaining to  the antiquities of this country it is the most  correct luminous & comprihensive.—
In regard to the land referred to by you I  would simply state that I have lands both in and  out of the some of which I hold deeds for and  others bonds for deeds when you come which I hope  will be as soon as convenient you can make  such a selection from among those as shall best  meet with your veiws & feelings. In gratefull re membrance of your kindness I remain your affec tionate Brother in the bonds of the
Everlasting Covenant
