Mr. David Whitmer, Richmond, Missouri
My object in writing is to invite you to attend the semi annual session of our conference, to be held at Galland’s Grove, Iowa, the 24 of this present month. There are many who will be glad to meet you, and see one who has so long and faithfully testified to the Book of Mormon, and for this object to give you respect. . . .
