Her husband is a son of Mr Mills the geologist whose wife left him to join the wild Korush Messiah at Chicago years ago. Mr Whitaker another Methodist minister whom I saw at the Grove & who is a friend & chum of your present minister Mr Leach is well acquainted with Cosy's husband & says he is a splendid young man.
