O. V. Avy's letter received yesterday, granting him & Bro[ther] Emil Buchmiller the privilege of taking each a wife among the Mayas of Yucatan, in case they found it would aid them in the more perfect accomplishment of the mission they proposed; but telling them there must be no plural marriages or other sexual relations with the women of that race.
