[Jeanne C.] Carr
Martinez, January 7, 1895.
My dear Mrs. Carr:
We are all glad that you so wisely work and bear up under your bereavement. All this passing from life to life, however gloriously hopeful is ever sad, and they are truly blest who have the strength and faith to work on and enjoy on without halting or hasting like a star, as Goethe says, or like a glacier, as I say.
All those cases of spirit-sight seem strange and most of us have to go on without it as best we can.
