[Jeanne C.] Carr
[Apr. 3, 1871] Midnight #63O Mrs Carr that you could be here to mingle in this nightnoon glory. I am in the upper Yo-Sem falls & can hardly calm to write but from my first baptism hours ago you, have been so present that I must try to fix you a written thought In the afternoon I came up the mountain here with a blanket & a piece of bread to spend the night in prayer among the spirits of this fall
