[John Henry Smith]

A letter dated July 1st from Bro. Geo. Q. Cannon says President John Taylor is dangerously sick and requesting us to not get out of the range of easy communication. We answered we would not and told them to send the word "come" if we should go by team, and "come quickly" if Rail. The message to be sent to Jesse N. Smith. [Taylor and Cannon are in hiding, wanted for charges related to polygamy]
