Letter to George W. Harris, 24 May 1839

as to getting the temporary house erected which you desired, I have not been able to  find any person willing to take hold of the job, and have thought that perhaps  you may meet with some person at Quincy who could take it in hand.
Business goes on with us in quite a lively manner and we hope  soon to have the acquisition of Brother [George W.] Harris and family, with other friends to  assist us in our arduous, but glorious undertaking. Our families are all well  and as far as we have knowledge all things are going on quietly and smoothly—
Yours &c &c
