Current Page Transcription [edit] [history]

Tuesday March 18th. I have just returned from bidding adieu to my Sister's husband. Tomorrow he starts to find a home in the "far West" and in a few weeks, my dear, and only, sister will follow him, leaving her home and kindred all for love of him. I shall be very lonely when she is gone. They are young and hopeful, may the fortune be as fair and high in realization as their fondest anticipations have pictured it. May they always remain young in feeling and their hearts never grow cold in contending with the stern realities of life. Life is all untried as yet before them. May their trust be firm in "Israel's God"; and their faith grow brighter and brighter till the perfect day.
