at Vermont, he is well. You may also say to them that the
prospect of my speedy restoration to health, is flattering at present; and that I will be
there, as soon as I think my health sufficient for the journey. I expect to return to
week after next, and will not tarry one day longer that I think my health requires.
My company is all gone, & am entirely alone; but it is all right, there is no blame,
I should have been very glad to have been at the Conference; but as I cannot, I repine not.
Beleive me Your br. in the hope of eternal life as ever
Elder J. Smith jr. [p. 127]
