Dear Brother,
Your certificate of deposit of $500.— came Safe to hand a few days ago. It shall be applied on the most advantageous purchase I can find. If a purchase could have been made early in the spring it could have been done to much better advantage than at present, owing to the vast number of the Saints who are continually pouring in to this — all, of course, want locations, consequently the land in the immediate vicinity had been taken up— However, I have no doubt, but that for Cash a good bargain can be had, which I shall endeavour to effect— the first oppertunity I have, and shall write you on the subject as soon as I do
With sentiments of esteem I am Yours in the bonds of the E[verlasting] Covenant
Joseph Smith
