Letter to Oliver Granger, 26 January 1841

P.S With respect to giving advise to the Saints  moving to Kirtland I would say, that  I feel desireous that the Eastern brethren  should come to this place, but at the same  time, those who had rather move to Kirtland  than to this place are at liberty to do so.
I am pleased you have secured  the keys of the Lords House and should  advise you and you are hereby requested  to hold them until I home come, whe I can not say when I shall pay you a visit  but I think not before the New York debts  be settled. So if you are desireous to see  me, you will have to exert yourselves to  get the debts settled.
Please to write me all the p[ar] ticulars of your transactions and let me  know when we shall have the pleasu[re]  of Seeing you here
J. S.
Dr [Isaac] Galland accompanied by some one of the  brethren (perhaps Hyrum [Smith]) intend to leave this place  in a few days for the East, on business for the  church, they will call at Kirtland and will  be glad to see you as you may possibly give  them such information as may will be necessary  for them in their business transactions.
J. S. [p. [3]]
