Fast day20 Dear Ellen Dont think I am growing cold if this letter should'nt go this mail, for Hiram just brought me yours and says the mail goes out this evening, so you see what little time I have to answer it. "Kiss all the babies for me" was well put in, for mine is most four weeks old, and very cross, and T think it doubtful whether this goes to the office; to night or not if it dont, just lay all the blame to my little Luna,-7 and dont send her any more kisses till she gets better natured. Since Alice came here, I have been keeping house alone and dont find time to do much else but I think of having Lucy stay with me a while, till we move to the White House on the hill, as we expect to shortly, for the President wants us to go there and take the hired men, for Mrs Young is tired of them and Joseph25 and "Brigs" new wives will want the rooms 25EUen'i younger Sister, Luev Curtis Spencer, born Lit Nauvoo, October 9, 1842, and now fifteen years of age. -6)-utter-clay Saints in pioneer Utah observed the first Thursday of each month as a clay of fasting and prayer. 27Lima Aurclia was bora January 11, 1857; died February 6, 1859. 38Probably Joseph A.
