[George F. Gibbs to Zina Y. Card]
You will doubtless remember a conversation I had with you about the Zelph arrowhead and seer stone presented by you to the president of the Church, also my suggestion that you see Sister Woodruff in regard to these sacred relics. I was exceedingly pleased today to learn that you had seen Sister Woodruff in regard to these things, and that Sister Woodruff had turned them over to you. Now my dear sister, as I told you, I am witness to the fact that these sacred relics were presented by you to the president of the Church, to become the property of the Church and not the property of any individual. And I am writing now to express the hope that it is your intention to see that this is done, and that there shall be no misunderstanding as to their ownership.
