Be assured of my continued regard for  your welfare and for the prosperity of the  Saints in Kirtland, and I pray that they  may prosper in every good word and work  and after the afflictions and tribulations of  mortality be crowned with everlasting joy  in the celestial kingdom of our God.
We continue to prosper in this place  and expect to have a large increase of inhabitants  the next Season, we are making preperation  for some large and extensive buildings which  we intend to build Erect soon.
With sentiments of respect, I am very  respectfully yours Affectionately
