I am his father:
And I want him to know that I have not forgotten to take advantage of every opportunity to write whenever I am permitted to do so.
His mother is here, too, and she sends her love to him and desires to say that she has heard the message which Mary wrote him and that she is the happiest little angel in all the spirit world.
And we are all happy and know that what has been told him is true. He must not doubt, even though he cannot now realize the opportunity of performing this great mission of which he has been called by the Master. In time he will be instructed and will have sufficient knowledge given him to do this work.
I say we are all happy, because of this great favor, and your mother says that she is thankful, so very much, and all her prayers expressed have been so surprisingly answered, that she never for one moment imagined that her boy would have been made the instrument in doing this work, that she also prayed that he might receive the Divine Love and become at-one with the Father, and when this other surprising favor came to him she realized that God was good to her beyond all conception.
Tell my boy he must believe and try his best to perform this work that I am sure a way will be opened up by which he will be enabled to do this duty, for now it is a duty.
