Dear Friend and Father,
"No plague same near our dwelling". For it in the shadows of his wings made we our refuge, until these calamities were overpast."
It le quiet as in His courts around this Holy Hill, and if it was not for the reports that human tongue spread like flames of greedy fire at the base of our abode, .mtruly, I would not know what is sold to have taken place. The "world" has died for me, and "I am comforted".
There never was an Easter like this Easter, and there is a $ in every thought thatUplifts.
Mother and babe were away, comforting the last days (or are they nighter) of a mother that has seen enough of this turmoil. They now have returned and Roland is well satisfied with the way I have fed his little chicks. He says that he likes the burn best "up at uncle's". "You can make all the noise you want. Down here in Berkeley they only study, study all the time." - O, child of God that leads me , I feel like you the weariness of the fleeh.
Our love to the sister, and let them put spray of "wild" flowers of the "desert" into a cup of cold water for us. It is said to be better offering than a candle on alter.
You, good father, look up into the stars for us.
