This was done to-day, just as I was telling cousin R. that, though he could be stood in a corner, and stand alone, yet he never attempted to use his feet before. . . . .My visit to Mount Holly proved a very pleasant one. They all so much want to know my husband. I have promised them at least a call from him, with his wife. The Burlington visit was so delightful!--everybody so glad to see me. Thee must know these kind and dear relatives. Indeed, dear husband, do let me have some time of thine for thee to see and know my friends, when thee comes. When will that be? How I long to be once more in my old place! The time seems very long since I left, though it is now passing very happily.Sunday Morning.. . . . How has passed this Sabbath with you, dear husband? I feel as if in spirit we have been much together. Oh, how blessed is the thought that we are "one" in the faith of the Gospel; that we are one for eternity; that heaven is our home, our eternal home; that our union here is but to help prepare and bring us to that home! God grant us His grace! His help be with us through all our earthly days, and safely bring us and ours to heaven at last!
