A   A Mutual Improvement mission
From the life of Thomas Fielding Burton:   In the fall of 1901, in accordance with a call from the First Presidency for a Mutual Improvement mission, I left my home for Salt Lake City preparatory to entering upon my labors, and was assigned to labor in the Alberta Stake, Canada. Elder Louis D. King being assigned to labor with me. While laboring in that Stake, I assisted Apostle John W. Taylor in organizing the Raymond Ward with Jesse William Knight as Bishop.
