Then I put you big trouble along side of my little one, and put a brave face on it. I hung the naked roses of ivy around the 'kernel of the' house. There will be a few new leaves when you get able to see them. Here's a letter from the good priest, who puts a pleasant prophecy in it, and I put it in for you. You will return it please, because I keep every pleasant word of this dear soul. who has passed through your sorrow. the stone masons sorrow - whose life is all love and service like Claudes. When he is dead, these precious leaves of his life, will be a sweet inheritance for some be- lated soul to possess - Your see dear John, he recognizes you as one baptized by Nature and the Spirit. I hope you are better. Let me know. Your friend Jeanne Carr00400
