Isaac Missionary Letter Home May 13

I like the not from the margin, "Kiss all the children for me.  I ever see them and you in my mind."   There is a page change in the middle, with an entirely diferent subject.  He talks of helping with the immigration, and hoping his family can meet a woman who has helped him on his mission.
