[6] Now Mrs Pelton I did not intend to write but one sheetful when I began and here I have strode far accross all bounds right or wrong and we have not had half a chat, You must not say anything about it this time and Ill never write you as long a letter again all my life I would like very much to talk awhile about the love of Jesus but I cannot take another sheet Ill write again someday, give my respects to all and be sure to write very soon and now I pray God to bless you and by his Holy Spirit make you more and more like his son our saviour will he take you to himself
