Mr
Caldwell Co Mo.
Will the Post Master  please forward this  as soon as it arrives
has kindly offered me a place  to write a few lines in his letter, and I cheerfully accept of it.
I can say with him  that I have left the Church called Latter Day Saints for conscience sake, fully  beleiving, that God is not with them, and is not the mover of their schemes and projects.  I do not wish to enter into particulars here. There are many in for whom  I entertain the highest regard. Their kindness I have seen, and their hospitality I  have shared during my sickness, and the sickness of my family. Let them  think of me as they will, I can assure them, that they will ever live in the memory of  a grateful heart. There are some few debts which I owe there, which I  would have settled before I came away, could I have done it consistently. But  I have left property enough to pay four times the amount which I owed. But if  they should not get it in that way I will pay them if I live, and get any thing to do  it with.
I do really hope that any friends will hasten and get out of as soon as possible. My calling is to warn men to flee from the wrath  to come; I therefore in the fear of the Lord, warn all the honest in heart to flee  out of as soon as possible.
I am with respect, Your Sincere Friend and well wisher
I shall probably go with And  Settle where he settles. [p. 19]
