: we understand that you have <​been​> cut off from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, and feeling an ardent desire for the Salvation of the Souls of Men, we take pleasure in feeling after you: and therefore would in the sincerity of men of God advise you to be rebaptised by Elder Nickerson, <​one of the Servant of God​> thus you may again receive the sweetin influences of the holy Ghost, and enjoy the fellowship of the Saints. <​The law of God requires it and you cannot be too good​> Patience is heavenly; obedience is noble: forgiveness is merciful; and exaltation is Godly: and he that holds out faithful to the end shall in no wise lose his reward.
Respectfully
Joseph Smith
A good man will endure all things for to honor Christ, and can dispose of the whole world and all in it to save his Soul grace for grace is aheavenly decree, and union is power where wisdom guides [p. [1]]
