ceiling fan with light fixture, and light fixture in another room, wiring

Hi,
I have another ceiling fan to hook-up with another cable going to another light fixture. In other words, I have 4 non-metallic cables coming thru the ceiling into a electrical box. One cable goes to the light switch on the wall for the ceiling fan, another cable goes to the fan switch on the wall for the ceiling fan, another cable goes to another light fixture in another room, and then there is the hot cable going to the breaker box. The light fixture in the other room is wired and has worked in the past, if I can figure out how all these wires go together. The wires on the ceiling fan are: black wire, white wire, and blue wire. All 4 wires coming out of the ceiling have: one black wire, one white wire, and a ground. Any help will be appreciated.

Kathleen

The whites of the two switch loop cables should be recolored black* on both ends and connected to the black of power in and black of cable to next light.

The white of power in, the white to the next light, and the white to the fan should be connected together.

One switch loop black to the fan motor and one switch loop black to the fan's light.

At the switch the black and white of one cable to one switch and the black and white of the other cable to the other switch.

Grounds connected in the normal manner.

*Actually the switch loop white can be recolored any color so long as it is not gray or green but black or red are the most common colors used. It can be done with colored tape or felt tip marker or paint.
