I am here, Mary.
Let me tell you just one thing - Helen says I may, and I of course want to, and I will not trespass very long.
You know I don't get the opportunity to write so often as Helen does, although I have just as much desire to do so as she has, and when the opportunity comes my way I am not as modest as I should be in taking advantage of it.
But I know you sympathize with me, for you can see how much good it does me, and I believe it does the Doctor also.
Well, I suppose the first word you expect me to say is that I love him with all my heart and soul, but I will not do that, though I have said it - haven't I? Well let it go and I am glad of it.
I am with him so often that if he could see me I am afraid that he would get tired of me and so you see there is some advantage in being invisible, but how I wish that sometime I could be visible to him that he might know just what kind of looking sweetheart he has. But this is of minor importance as compared to the fact that he is my soulmate, and that our loves are linked together for all eternity, and that only a comparative few years separate us from each other.
I am very happy in my new home, and I am so anxious to tell him of it, and try to describe some of its glories, but I cannot do so tonight.
Well, he must continue to believe in me and in my love, and that he is to me the dearest being in all God's universe, and that no one else of all the myriads of men or spirits, can take his place now or ever.
I see that he is quite happy and that makes me happy, and I must tell him this - that while there is none that loves him just as I do, yet there are many high spirits, as well as his own folks, who are with him very much trying to help him with their love and influence. It seems so strange to many spirits here that such things should be, and it is wonderful when I tell you that very few of the spirits of the spiritual spheres have the celestial spirits with them as he does, and thence these spirits of the spirit spheres look upon him as a kind of important mortal whose company it is well to cultivate, and many of them are with him also.
Thank God, that he is able to have such associates as these celestial spirits, with their wonderful love and influence. God is love, and His love goes out to mortals just to the degree that they open up their souls to its inflowing, and my dear has his soul very much opened up, and the love is coming to him all the time. I must not write more now, and I thank you for permitting me to write.
So give him my love, and remember that I am your sister in love, and pray for you both, with all the earnestness and faith that I possess.
This is a wonderfully beautiful letter and gives me so much happiness and joy.
