Dear friend,

I will not go out this morning without leaving a note, for it happens that you come when we go out, and Thus we do not see your, this is a sorrow to us WHO Desire to see you every day while we are here - you into whose joys and sorrows we have deeply entered in long ago in our country the story of your life. We have then prayed for you that no more Thorns may be in your way, but that it may be crowned with loving kindness, and thender mercy. My husband has left for you an invitation to take tea with us this evening. My hope is to see you. What a joy it has been to us to see you here in your own land, / and we hope yet to see you in our own - warm hearts will welcome you, you will find yourself at home Find that we may everywhere, for everywhere we are in Our Father's house. God bless, and keep you well ever

Your affectionate friend

Rebecca Spring
