Dearest Child

One kind word of loving wishes for you and for a safe & prosperous voyage & a happy meeting with all your dear ones at home . How glad they will be to have you I can well imagine God bless you & keep you always in His most loving care. Sometimes you will think of the words you heard in that [?] Church you said you did think of them & will you read this little book I enclose. I love it so. by the man who was clergyman there for some years & only left this March. he is so good & delightful & a glorious Preacher – and very ugly!!but you forget it quite.

Will you send me yr home address. you wont have time to write now so much to do but when you can, do – it will be a pleasure. I shant forget you & only hope I shall see you again one day ere very long. Every Kind wish for a bright & joyous life & dont forget yr old friend who loves you very dearly
