I am here, Mary Kennedy.
Well, I am here, and of course he knows it and if he says he does
not, he is either telling an untruth or is asleep, and I don't believe
that he is either. Yes, I am here, and am glad that I can write
once more even only a few words.
I am, of course, very happy and have enjoyed the evening listening
to your conversation, and especially that part of it when you conversed
about the great gift that my soulmate will receive and exercise.
I have known this for some time, but was not permitted to disclose
the fact, and now that Helen has told him, I am all anxiety to repeat
it. Oh, how glad I am that he has been selected for this work, for
two reasons: one, that he will be doing the will of the Father,
and the other, that when his soul gets in that condition that will
enable him to exercise this great power, I know that his development
will be such that he and I will be very close together in our oneness,
and that we will not have to be separated so very long after he
comes to me. What a wonderful blessing this is, and how I thank
the Father that he has bestowed this possibility upon my dear one.
I will not write more now as Helen says that you have written enough
So with my love I will say good night,
