Pratt tells Wiggin that he is sending a parcel of books to Mr. Ward and hopes that Ward's high expectations will not disappoint Bishop Chase. Chase's anticipation of the sale of American Prayer Books covering the cost of stereotype plates will not be realized, so more money must be raised for this goal. Pratt also stresses the importance of advertising in the West Periodical.
