God lead you more & more into His mind, especially as its beauty & its grandeur is made manifest in Him who is the effulgence of His glory & the very image of His substance – How much my dear Mr Muir a mind as open as yours to revelations of beauty [may?] get from companionship with “the Man Christ Jesus” I shall indeed love to see you in your own home. And greatly do I hope that some day we may be able to pull upon your heart strings from this end strongly enough to bring you down to us once more. Why will you not make it a resting place when you come to the city Don’t adventure yourself there It’s a wretched place It [isn’t?] safe [illegible] out here amid Gods works & give us the joy of more intimate companionship – Come & help me to see more of God.Ever faithfully yoursF.
