Content Description Reports the sleighing is very good. Updates him on all the weddings. Says Grier is "pretty good at minding what I say indeed much more than I ever expected." Comments the prayer meetings are well attended. Expresses sorrow for "the neuralgia in his head." Advises him to avoid close confinement. Hopes he will continue to clerk in Memphis through the winter: "I don't feel quite as uneasy about you when you are clerking as when you are marching." Acknowledges the many temptations he must be facing, "but remember that out of them all the Lord is able to deliver you." Asks if he needs any money.
