But thanks to a kind heavenly father I now feel different I feel that there is still much of work for me to do And by Gods grace assisting me I will still press my way onward and upward until I shall arrive where my Saviour is

My Dear friend when you bow before the mercys seat will you not allow my name to be remembered then And whether we meet again or not on earth I trust we will meet before our God on high in that world of lights

We are all in moderate health But I know you will not expect me to write a very long or a very well prepared letter

I hope to hear from you as soon as you have time to write

Yours very truly

George P
