My very dear Student

Pardon this half sheet for I have to enclose it and mail away from here

O! how I would love to peep in upon you this bright morning and tell you all I feel How my prayers speechless go out to you for benedictions How I long to have the way made easier for you and the evil restrained, the wrath of man made to praise God and the remainder bidden backPs 76:10 Surely the wrath of man shall praise thee: the remainder of wrath shalt thou restrain.

I have awakened As Written: awakend a ripple of interest in this beautiful grand old cityEditorial Note: Washington, D.C.. There was none to understand at first We are on Pennsylvania Ave now shall take board As Written: boad the rest of our short stay here on Capitol Hill that overlooks the Capitol Building a heavenly site it seems and O may I build a ladder from my pillow of stone that shall open to them the heavenly visionGen 28:10 ¶And Jacob went out from Beer–sheba, and went toward Haran. Gen 28:11 And he lighted upon a certain place, and tarried there all night, because the sun was set; and he took of the stones of that place, and put them for his pillows, and lay down in that place to sleep. Gen 28:12 And he dreamed, and behold a ladder set up on the earth, and the top of it reached to heaven: and behold the angels of God ascending and descending on it. Gen 28:13 And, behold, the Lord stood above it, and said, I am the Lord God of Abraham thy father, and the God of Isaac: the land whereon thou liest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed; Gen 28:14 And thy seed shall be as the dust of the earth, and thou shalt spread abroad to the west, and to the east, and to the north, and to the south: and in thee and in thy seed shall all the families of the earth be blessed. Gen 28:15 And, behold, I am with thee, and will keep thee in all places whither thou goest, and will bring thee again into this land; for I will not leave thee, until I have done that which I have spoken to thee of. Gen 28:16 ¶And Jacob awaked out of his sleep, and he said, Surely the Lord is in this place; and I knew it not. Gen 28:17 And he was afraid, and said, How dreadful is this place! this is none other but the house of God, and this is the gate of heaven. Gen 28:18 And Jacob rose up early in the morning, and took the stone that he had put for his pillows, and set it up for a pillar, and poured oil upon the top of it.
