Matt 18:22 Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto thee, Until seven times: but, Until seventy times seven. The case of poor IdaEditorial Note: Possibly Ida Childs, Clara E. Choate’s sister. has been a conflict with me to know just my duty You can’t let her pass from sight if you tell her mental Dr's the argument but who is willing to do that The demons laid before her the temptation got her into it and then said kill her if she tries not to be found out O my father when will their time come "How long O Lord, holy and true, how—long?Rev 6:10 And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth? Why do they not work harder? They are not beating them back who have done and are doing all they can, thinking that the case whether it should turn one or the other way it would be a death blow to Mrs. C.'sEditorial Note: Probably Clara E. Choate practice I will see you soon and talk what cannot be written Your Photo looks honest strong and as if it remembered am I right on the phiz
