My Dear Friend I often think of you & would live very much to hear from you. I wrote to you & call [ ] but have not received any answer but will write again. I often think of the commendations we had last summer & know often I think of something that I would love to have your mind about, but have to take it out in thinking. I sincerely hope that your mind has become better satisfied, so that you feel a sweet, [ ], to the will of God. You know we must suffer his will as well as do it. I hope you feel it good to confide all to him. Mr. Howard preached last Sabbath. He spoke of the vision on trance of a little girl nine years old. I do wish you could have heard him relate it. She said that the Great Throne + [ ] [ ] number of children so that hen little Bratten that had died came to speak to him from a [ ] of beautiful flowers + she asked him if he didn’t want to come back to see his Ma. But he said no that he didn’t want to come back home, so she ask the savior if she couldn’t stay but he told her no that her time had come. But it would seem very long so it wont be long before I hope we shall all meet in one of those beautiful [ ]. That is [prepared] for those that love the Savior. I would like to hear from your mind about them after Wanda. You know that some think that we will all be together & others think they will be in different places in space. I should think it was a deep [ ]. I hope that you have the mind that was in Christ but must bring this [ ] to a close. Hoping to hear from you soon. Please [ ] [ ] love to the [ ] & Miss Louisa & all. Adios Your aff friend E Slaltan
