Additional Details

". . . I think it would be advisable for you to stay in Ogden until you have paid your debts, and can go on your mission free from such encumbrances. . . . Above all cease from henceforth to trade with outsiders, but sustain in your deal and trading your brethren--those who are the friends of God and his people and who support this work. It having been voted in general conference that we will no longer fellowship those who trade with outsiders in the manner many have done heretofore."
