Yesterday afternoon we attended

The opera was presented free to

Boar Sirs:
Thinking that perhaps you would
llko to hoar from onu of tho mission
aries In tho field, and thnt also, your
readers would bo Interested In a fow
lines from tho samo sourco, I will
take this opportunity of penning a
few thoughts. After nearly four
months In tho mission field, I havo
como to realize that a great work is
beforo tho Elders, and beforo tho
Church. Thoro are hundreds of thou
Bands who havo novor heard tho mes
sage. Yes, millions havo yet to bo
warned, and an tho timo la drawing
short extra dlllgonce Is necessary on
tho part of those who aro carrying tho
moosngo nnd upon thoso who hnvo the
work In charge.
Strenuous efforts nro being made
to keep up tho quota of missionaries
in tho Hold, and If possible, to In
crease It. The peoplo of tho church
aro mnklug great sacrifices to help
the work along, nnd nraong others
tho pooplo of Cache Valley nro doing
tholr sharo to holp sprond tho gospel
message abroad nnd that Is n prettty
good Indication of their sincerity and
deslro for good.
Perhaps -you vould llko to hear n
little in regard to the work hero. You
aro probably awnro thnt wo nro bolng
mado tho target for a battery of mud
Bllngors, or writers for so-called popu
lar magazines. It seems thnt all hell
has combined at onco In o grentoffort
to stir up tho old days of persecution
again for us as a people, Tho heads
of tho church aro bolng made tho
special targets, nnd are having hurled
at them nn amount of venom nnd bit
terness, tho llko of w;hlch I havo novcr
witnessed In any of tho magazines
boforo. At tho samo tlmo, In England
tho government has boon induced by
BC-callod ministers of tho gospel, "and
so-called follow ors of tho Lord Josus
Christ, to ordor an Investigation of
what has beon glibly called, tho
"Mormon Question." In Gormnny
tho American oldors are fnrhlililnn n

press nro against us, and all manner
of lies nro being told nnd printed Wo
elders hnvo to meet tho most ridicu
lous statements nnd quostlons. Wo
hnvo Insults hurled at us, and nro
sometimes practically ordered away,
But tho work Is going on Just tho
same, wo are getting out literature,
nto meeting tho peoplo nnd talking
I with thorn, our friends nro romalnlng
loyal and wo aro a squiring othors.
Whllo It Is tmo thnt a great manyl
pooplo beHovo tho Blush and nro
prejudiced against us, yet many nro
bo fair minded, nnd tho articles aro
bo ridiculously overdrawn, that wo

As for myself I havo felt no serious
consequences .as yet. True, a fow
days ago a Methodist mlnlstor start

tho holp of tho Lord I was ablo to

nlways Is tho caso tho truth camo off
Of courso tho mlnlstor will toll his

In tho first place, whoro Is tho mnga
