Title Dear Ellen, Page 068
Description Dear Ellen Ellen Pratt McGanj to Ellen Spencer Clawson Beaver Apr 23d 1870 Dear Ellen At last J scat myself to inform you that I am still in the land of the living, and should much like to have witness from your own hand if "you arc enjoying the same blessing." I was determined to get a communication on the Planchette before I wrote lo you if the thing was possible, but it has proved an impassibility thus far, the spirits that make Planchette dont seem to inhabit this portion of the country, two or three have tried it that have formerly been very successful in table tipping but Planchette wont move for them but perhaps it is "all for the best" is it true that the Godby-ites get their revelations through the Planchette and that Charlotte is their medium? that is what we hear. I had rather a serious time getting home, it was four weeks from the time I left the city before I got home. I had to stay two weeks in Salt Creek the very last place of all others where I would wish to stay, but there was no other alternative, for the horse was lame and I do not know how T should have stood it had it not been for those books you gave me for which T render you heartfelt thanks. I found kind friends who treated me as kindly as though I was their own, but I felt quite disappointed when I came through Battle Creek and could not see Mary Ann. it was snowing and of course the company could not stop for me to visit I could see her upper window from the road and I did want to stop so bad. I think 1 can stop when I go that way again. I also wanted to visit in Provo but I did not see any one as I passed through there. And I was so in hopes to sec Julia Felshaw as I eame through Fillmore but she was at meeting and we could not wait to see her. When I arrived home Mother was all out of patience waiting fr>r me so long. My Nellie was just coming down with the murnps, and as you may suppose was overjoyed to see me, but could not laugh for crying, she feels very anxious to see sister Clawson's little girls I had so much to tell her about them. I saw Briggy when he went through here with his father, he told me you were all well Mother and I both think quite strongly of coming up there this spring but it seems like quite an undertaking I dont know whether we shall quite make it out or not. I do not think we shall get there to conference if we do. Lois's health is quite good and her family except her babe has 68
