Dear Frank [Franklin Richards Snow 1854-1942]

You may look for an order from the Juarez [Colonia Juarez, Chihuahua, Mexico] office of 35.00. Order to be credited my account in your office.

I wish to inform you and your brothers that after much correspondence with George Albert [George Albert Snow 1863-1939] and saying all that I feel I could wisely say or do, He has flatly assured me that he cannot give up Effie Stodard [Effie Luvera Stoddard 1865-1954] and that there [they are] are engaged in Marriage and expect to Marry the 1st part of March [Monday 1886-03-01] or soon after.

I have written him to hold on till I return and I will either Marry them or get some other [?] to do so, rather than have them apply to any Magistrate or sectarian priest. But perhaps she may be influenced to comply with our faith and rules. Let us all help him draw her to us and help save her if possible the only seeming means of saving George Albert [George Albert Snow1863-1939] from a bad fate.

                            Yours etc

                            Erastus Snow
