EDITOR DESERET NEWS:
DEAR BROTHER:—At the request of brother Albert W. Giles, who arrived here last fall, from Southampton Conference, England, I write to you for the purpose of getting published in the NEWS a description of the clothes he lost by which he was left entirely destitute of everything in the shape of property, excepting only the clothes he had on.
Brother Giles drove team in a freight train of Thomas Booth, but being taken sick on the plains he was left at Fort Bridger. He left his luggage in the wagon, to be brought forward to the city. A young Danish man by the name of Alfred Learson drove the team from Bridger to G. S. L. City, and that young man cannot now be found.
