I am here, William Stone:

I am the father of that boy, and I want to say to him that I am happy, too, as well as his mother; but not as happy as she is, I am not in her high sphere, but am striving to get there and enjoy her home. Leslie, my son, I am also happy that you are trying to follow the steps of the Master in your love for the Father, and in your soul aspirations.

Believe in this truth and you will not be disappointed. When the great day of reunion comes, you will find more love waiting you than you ever thought possible for a spirit to receive. So trust in God and follow the teachings of the Master. I know the importance of this as one who was ignorant of them on earth and has learned only since coming to the spirit world.

I bless that dear mother of yours, for if it had not been for her teachings after she came over, I would probably be an easy going spirit, as I was a man, enjoying the happiness which my good nature and love of things generally gave me. But when she came, and I saw she had a Love which I had not, and which I must get to be with her, and when she told me how much she loved me, I sought for the kind of Love she had, and with her help and that of the Holy Spirit, I obtained this Love, and am now very happy, for it is this Love which alone may make it possible for me to be with her where she is.

But I am not yet with her, as her soul condition is above mine for me to be able to share her home. She is so beautiful and good that I am not content to live away from her, and I am trying with all my soul's desires to be together with her, through prayer to the Father for this Divine Love, the one possession that can make me worthy of her.

So, Leslie, believe what we say, and trust in God, and you will be happy.

Your loving father.
