I am here, your own true and loving Helen.
Well dear, I see that you do not feel like writing much tonight, and I will say only a few words.
The Master was anxious to finish his message, but he saw your condition and was not displeased that you did not write.
So sweetheart, keep up your courage and faith and pray, and you will be happier and realize your desires. Good night, my own dear husband.
Your own true loving,
