I am here, Helen:
Well sweetheart, I have been waiting for sometime to write to you and tell you that you are not doing the right thing by sending the message to the man who wrote the article in which the message comments on his, a man that will not appreciate what it contains. I say this because I have visited him since you commenced to think of writing to him and find that he is another self-conceited man and has opinions of his own which are not easily influenced.
I would like you to send it to anyone who would appreciate it, but I do not believe that the man you have in mind will.
Well, as you say, Jesus is the one to judge and he may think differently from me and I think I may ask him. He may decide that you had better send it even though he sees that the man will not believe in the ways of its coming.
So I will not say that you do not send it until he has decided the matter, and he is here now and will write you, but before I stop I want to say that I love you with all my heart and am with you trying to comfort you and make you feel the effect of my love.
So with all my heart, I will say goodnight.
Your own true and loving,
