Received your letter, but failed to find the "tract" you was supposed to put in. Guess you forgot it. Glad to hear you all had a nice Christmas and most of all glad to hear you are all so happy and have let the Lord into your lives. It sure does make one feel much happier no matter how often these little trials come up. As you say it draws us closer to the Lord. You must all feel very happy about Johns folks asking the Dear Savior as their Savior. Were they all immersed and has John ever been [?] The verse that song you wrote to me is sure true. It must be very cold for John to work up on Coney Island in the winter time.
It has been very cold here the last week or two. Have to have three gas stoves most all day. Coldest they have had for years. But no snow or ice to walk on and your face or feet don' freeze. If one is dressed warm it is lovely. I want to tell you what we have on our beds at night. We don' have any heat in house at night Aunt Lillie sleeps between cotton blankets, has a heavy cotton comfort on and a feather comfort on that. It looks like a feather bed only it is quilted like a comfort and then her spread. I sleep on a cotton blanket Have a sheet of wool blanket a new heavy double cotton blanket a heavy cotton comfort a white spread And then I double another double cotton blanket in hold and put that over top of my bed am not any to warm.
With these little hen houses and no heat at night You just feel like you are sleeping in the open. One sure sleeps fine if you have enough bed clothes. Lots of people have had to take hot rum or hot water bottle to bed with them to keep warm during the cold snap/ Lots of suffering among the poor who haven' enough warm bed clothes. Wish I had plenty of money just for one reason and that is to help the poor have warm clothing and bed cloths in winter. Lillie I guess you won' get hurt or mad at Aunt Sallie
Take a short break with our 1 minute survey, simple questions that are an enjoyable distraction.
He is say now A man came to services not long ago and said he wanted to be prayed for And that he was miserable. He was loosing his hearing. Why when I go to a show I just can't hear any thing they say I want to be prayed for so I get my hearing. The speaker says he wanted his hearing so he could hear what they say at the show.
He said most people wont believe in the healing until they are healed. He said a man promised him a fine pair of shoes. He said he said he hasn't got the shoes yet but that didn't stop him from thanking the man. He said he thanked him so much that the man may give him two pairs. Tell the dogs I love them.
Don't wait to thank God for our healing until we get it Thank him and trust him when we ask And we sure will get it. I wish I could be strongest in my faith and take my healing. But I can't

expect to get it when I am holding on to the Lord with one hand and the Shoe with the other and allow the terrible fear to come over him when my beach get to hurting me so Fear I believe is one of the worst thing we have to fight.
Mrs McPherson is away now and they have a good speaker at temple. His name is Mitchel. He isn't so expectable as Mrs McPard preaches fine sermons. I don't go to temple/ It is too far away and take almost a whole day to go and Uncle Harry won't go on Sundays.

She has a few then cotton blankets and is going to send them to you. Thinking they would do for a change on the boys bed.
When they wet the beds you would have a dry one to change with they are not heavy enough or warm enough to cover with But good enough to sleep on. There isn't much warmth in old cotton blankets. She is putting in two old spreads, maybe you can use and a piece of unbleached woolen that came off a wool comfort for the first cover and there was a satin cover over it. It is all sticked but not "rent". Maybe you could rip the sticking our and wash it in your machine and use it for something A cover over your mattress Or the first cover over a cotton comfort and first calico cover over it. If you make a comfort. We can keep warm without comforts
