Spencer W. Kimball, PRESIDENT
September 3, 1975


Dear Friends:

       As one who is very grateful, may I express the gratitude
of the Kimball family that your ancestor, Alpheus Gifford,
was so responsible for bringing our ancestor into the Church.

     I believe in family reunions and believe that much good
can be accomplished by the association of family members to
recount stories of the family and keep them fresh in the
memory of the people of the family.

     I hope also that the members of your family will keep rec-
ords of their own lives and the lives of their family members.
Such biographies and autobiographies become very precious as
time goes on and generations succeed each other.

     Please accept my best wishes, and may I express apprecia-
tion for the other members of the Kimball family and also for
the Church for your faithfulness and devotion and loyalty.

     With kindest wishes,
                                                                Faithfully yours,

                                                                  Spencer W Kimbasll
