I am made very happy by the good news I hear of you all from Mrs. Choate. I shall expect an early visit from you when I return and then I will give my appointed lectures if I continue here. But I feel so utterly alone I am scared at my own desolation O, I have nothing left me of earth or on it to love, as I do love, [?]  Unclear or illegible  satisfied to have solitude and toil if only I had one to call my own

Pardon me, dear one, I have written more than I intended of my feelings, and that is why I have not written before. I dared not trust a pen. I am so apt to dip it in my heart

Write me please when I am goneEditorial Note: Mary Baker Eddy was about to leave for Barton, Vermont, to take some time away after her husband's passing. She was accompanied by Alice Sibley and they stayed at Arthur Buswell's family home for a month, returning on August 6, 1882. and I will send my P.
