Title Dear Ellen, Page 031
Description The Letters an alteration in her appearance and manners, all for the better Say nothing about it if you please, but I fear their future docs not bid fair to be a pleasant one, matrimonial squalls arc likely to be too frequent to warrant happiness if they live together, they have dissolved now but perhaps it will be only for a short time some little fault of disposition I suppose on both sides. What a pity! that we are not all made perfect, but if they can't agree 1 think it is much better to seperate while they arc both young and no large family depending on them for support, but please do not say any thing about it: as coming from me especially You must have had a pleasant time indeed the twenty fourth how I should have enjoved being with you. I read a detailed account of it in the News.111 it was truly grand it rather surpasses any thing we ever have here. One little favor I wish to beg of you Ellen if it will not be intruding too much upon your time and patience Sister Ilutchinson I suppose has my picture yet 1 sent it to her on condition that she would send me hers and my little namesake's1' together, she has never sent them and I suppose does [does not] prize mine very highly now that I have so fallen from grace there is no chance for having one taken here and I know of one to whom it would be a great consolation to have it, that one, is mv Father, on his lonelv mission and I shall have a chance •• , to send it to him this fall, so if you will please just to step over there, present my compliments to her and tell her my hearl is unchanged towards her whatever she may cherish towards me, get mv picture, do it up nicely and hand it to the mail carrier. 1 will consider it a great kindness and thank you sincerely for your trouble and do as much for you if it ever lays in my power Now please don't fail, to write every mail as you are all the Salt Lake correspondent I have now. I await very anx- t News, July 30, lS5fi. "Sue note 2.
