1911 Letter from Rev. Schell to Rev. Wylie about the Church’s missing bell

Rev. J.P. Schell writes to Rev. D. W. Wylie about the Church’s missing bell. He states that, in addition to hearing about the bell from other sources, while serving as a missionary in Utah he met Brigham Young’s brother George, and that George Young knew about the missing bell and did not deny that it was in Salt Lake City.

The letter was written in Erie, North Dakota, where Rev. Schell was pastor of the First Presbyterian Church.
