Boston Mass Elder Sal^m^l Dam Sir I have Just arived home From A long Mission to the West and Seeing Some Companies leave Philadelphia for the valley I recived yours of the 25th and hasten to Reply By Saying that I have long been Desirous to Know your address and have Written to others in order to obtain it that I Might addess you upon A Subject touching your interest This being the first time I have known your address Though at this late hour I hasten to Perform My Duty Which is as follows Soon after I Parted With you I Recived A letter from Elder Orson Hyde Requesting Me to Call for your Licence or papers from the Chuch Giving you Any authority to Preach the Gospel in Consquence of intoxication and Bringing Disrefute upon the Cause While in the hands of the Police in Philadelphia. I Now fulfil My Duty by Requesting you to Send Me all your papers Pertaining to Preaching Particularly the one I Signed enclosed In your letter Which Will Prevent your being Published Directed to Me to Cambridgeport Mass These kind of Communications are very Painful to My feelings and it is always More Pleasing to Me to Give Good News than to Demand A Mans licence for transgression
