Dear brethren in the Lord,
I send you my love and warmest wishes for your prosperity in the great cause of our Redeemer.
We are now commencing to prepare and print the New Translation, to gether with all the revelations which God has been pleased to give us in these last days, and as we are in want of funds to go on with so great and glorious a work, brethren <we> want you should donate and loan us all the means or money you can that we may be enable[d] to accomplish the work as a great Means towards the salvation of Men.
My love to my relatives &c
your brother in the bonds of the .
