To Mrs . Dear Sister in the Lord
With pleasure I spend a portion of the time which the Lord in his goodness has alloted unto us in addressing you through the medium of my pen. altho strangers to each other in the flesh yet I trust we have been made near to each other by being Baptised into one spirit by embracing the fullness of the everlasting Gospel of Jesus Christ which has been brought to light inc this age of the world. & hope the time is not far distant when I shall be permited to gather with the saints & have an inheritance in which is to be a Joy & prais in the whole earth, I saw a Notice in the Times & Seasons for those having hymns suitable for the Worship of the Latter day saints to forward them to you. I have selected some lines & will send them & if you [sho]uld think proper you can give them a place in your Book subject to [s]uch alterations as you should choose to make.
