Received by James Padgett
I am here, your own true and loving Helen.
Well dear, I see that you are disappointed tonight in not receiving the message from James, so that you could write it as he intended to deliver it.
Well, the conditions were not good and the rapport not sufficient to enable you to finish the message. He was disappointed, also, but he will come again and deliver it to you.
I see that you are very sleepy and must go to bed. So have faith, and love me, and say good night.
Your own true and loving Helen.
