Weston, Idaho, Aug. 6, 1897.
…Fairview is a bishop’s ward between Preston, Idaho, and Lewiston, Utah, and everyone lives on his ranon one mile apart, the people are all busy in the fields and no men are to be found at home in day time. They are too tired to talk much of anything at night. Here, as in all other Mormon towns, you will find a neat and substantial church, surrounded by a beautiful grove of trees; and here and there a neat school house, situated so as the children from every nook and corner of their scattered homes can reach it, and all have a chance for education. M.W. Pratt, son of the late Elder Parley P. Pratt is bishop….
