To Whom it may concern:
We hereby certify, that the bear ers, Edward Partridge, bishop of the church of the Latter  Day Saints, and Isaac Morley, an elder of the  same, are personally known to us, having been  faithful members of this church from its  first organization in this state, and as men of  piety, veracity and strict moral principles and  virtue, we recommend them to all to <among> whom they  may be called, as such: we know they have been  long tried with affliction and adversity, per secution and peril for the sake of that reli gion which they have espoused, and for those  principles which they now seek to dissemi nate, and should any man, who may be of the  like faith, be disposed to entrust moneys or  other properties in their hands for the good  of the poor and afflicted, or for any other  purpose, they will find them to be perfectly  honest and strictly responsible.
