Swe had a man yesterday cleaning the yard before summerschool students come in and could get their dresses filled with stickers. He was a perfectly new man to us. When he left he divided his wages with the child outside and he run in to slip it into his mother's purse. Our house is built upon rock, and whoever touches its foundation draws the crystalspring of living water. I pray to God that he mix one drop of it into each draft that any of our friends drink anywhere.Who took [illegible] to put it into his bank bookYour friend,[illegible]
