I am here, Mrs. Mitchell:

Let me say only a word.

I was present at church this morning and heard my son's sermon, and was so happy that he preached of the Divine Love of the Father and the work of the Holy Spirit. It made me think that the Truths of God's Love and man's redemption are becoming a part of his soul's knowledge.

There were many spirits present and many were affected by the sermon and turned their thoughts to this Love the Father, that had never before been preached to them.

I have great hope that my son will receive the truths that have been revealed to you in their fullness, and thereby receive to a greater degree this transformation of his soul into the very essence of the Father. I thank you for your kindness, and will not write more.

So with my love I will say goodnight.

Your sister in Christ,

(Mrs. Mitchell)

Mother of Rev. Mitchell
