Mary G.


Dear Louie, Don’t think your gentle reprimand has fallen on unhearing ears, if I hurt your feelings thoughtlessly the other day I have been paying dearly for it since. I deserved justly the chastisement and I know how kindly your intentions were, none but a kind friend would have spoken as you did, and I write this to thank you. We go through life too highly I fear to observe the sweet lessons of love and sincerity with which we are surrounded. God bless you Louie. Again I thank you. Mary T.
