Carlisle, Pa., June 6th 1881 Dear Bishop Huntington, I cannot possibly leave my duties here without great detriment. My heart is with all and full of all that you do on tomorrow, and I pray for it, a great blessing, and a harvest of salvation to these poor people, commensurate with the cares, the sacrifices, the labors and the prayers of Christian planting bestowed by yourself, the House Mother, Mr. Wicks, and all others who have aided. In love and faith Cordially a Co-laborer RH Pratt
