-ate is the warfare between my strength and grief. At times the latter about conquers and it is difficult to find hope. Oh, how sweet would be a full consciousness that I can again take the hand of my sainted boy in mine, and be with him forever. For your condolence accept our gratitude and may heaven keep you and yours ever from sorrow, through the whole of life. I sorrow, I am sincerelyYours etcWilliam C. FlintJohn Muir EsqMartinez - Cal.
