You wrote me the only words of comfort that can mean anything to me at this time;
said gentle things about the two people with whom and for whom I chiefly lived.
long years I was often away from them
for long stretches of time, but to both of them I wrote often. And they were always
there; Douglass4 enjoying life as few people
ever can, a bachelor and always ready to come to me. And Isabelle5 growing every year more beautiful in person and spirit.
