I am here, Jesus:

I have been interested in your reading of the messages and on desires tonight and I know that they will do much good to those who have heard them for I must tell you that there have been present a large number of spirits of all kinds that have listened attentively to what you have read and many of them are wondering what they can mean as they only heard the important points of the messages referred to.

You must continue to receive the messages just as soon as you get in a better condition physically which will soon be as you will commence to recover your vitality, just as quickly as the weather gets a little cooler.

Tonight I will not write more as it is very late and you had better go to bed, but I will come soon and write you. So with my love I will say goodnight.

Your brother and friend,
