[in margin: 419] 00868 October 9, 1879. O Friend Beloved, if ever the dear Lord leads you out from the depths of those blue glacier caves, and will let me once more look upon your face, that I may know you are not become only a white wraith of the northland – there will be no happier woman than I in all the wide world. Then I can rejoice with you in all the marvelous wonder and wildness with which your soul has been thrilled for the summer time of this new year. But now! remembering you
