Letter from Frederick Ellis Barker, 22 May 1898
52 Burren Street, Erskineville, Sydney, . Prests. Wilford Woodruff, Geo. Q. Cannon, and Joseph F. Smith, Salt Lake, Utah. Dear Brethren: There are now 22 Elders laboring in this mission, two of whom are released to return home next month, (June [18]98). In case others are released after being 2 1/2 years in the field (as has heretofore been the rule of practice) there will be two more to be released before Oct. next, and three during that month, thus reducing the number from 22 to 15, not counting any hereafter to arrive. Elders Rudolph Korth and Jno. B. Mathias arrived on the 10th inst., and have gone to their fields of labor. We shall be under some difficulties at once to prosecute the work now under way, and could easily use double the force now in the field. There are numbers of places where I believe openings could be made to some advantage, as where we already have one or more members or friends. Elders who could speak German would be specially valuable in some parts. There have been four baptisms within the past month. Your Brother in the Truth, F. E. Barker. Let us send from two to three each each month until he shall be supplied—at least with from six to 12 Elders—one or two good German speakers J. F. S
