General Note

A portion of a letter to Sally Phelps, written in the hand of William Wines Phelps. Discusses buying "jeans" for the children; he perceives from Sister Marsh's letters to Thomas that she is "turning to be a Rhymestress" (of poetry); Bro. Whitmer's father and mother came to Kirtland from Vermont and were both baptized; great exertions being made to finish the house of the Lord; trying to procure a bell for the temple; sees and talks to Elder Marsh every day; asks Sally to keep all his letters locked up so he can make a book of them; says by the time she gets this letter, the "covenants will arrive and the Saints must learn their duty from the Revelation;" tells her to make sure no copies of his letters get out, as they are like his private journal; the necessity of forgiving and being forgiven of men.
