Letter of Release
You are honorably released from your labors as traveling elder in the Glasgow Conference with permission to return home on the steamship Nevada which sails January 30th 1892.
Your labors in the ministry in this land have been satisfactory to the Presidency, and no doubt they will result in much good to the people who have listened to your testimonies and given their minds to the contemplation of the Gospel truths presented to them through your instrumentality.
We pray that the blessings of our Eternal Father may attend you during your journey, and that your life may be spared to reach home in peace and safety, there to enjoy the society of loved relatives and friends, at the gathering place of the Saints.
We beseech you, dear brother, to continue your faithful labors in Zion, as directed by the servants of the Lord, to establish the Church and Kingdom of God upon the earth.
Your Brother in Christ,
42, Islington Liverpool, January 27th, 1892
