My dear I have nothing to add to what I wrote last night. I will try to write again tonight. I am getting ready to go to church, which it is to be hoped will be of benefit to me. I wish we could go together. To think we have never been able to go together since I have begun to take some interest in the matter…. God bless you. Good bye.
Your devoted Husband
