Dear cousin Hattie,

Agreeable to my word I write you a line; not that I have anything especial to say, but that I want to say something of my late experience

The day after my return home I had a violent seizure, I had been in the atmosphere of the sick too long for my belief and was now in a bad fix. Mrs. B — ran for Dr. Eddy, he came when I was unconscious and immediately broke the spell! I was astonished at his skill, he was calm, clear and strong, and so kind I fell in love with him! never before had I seen his real character, so tender and yet so controlling Hattie, you would change your views of him if you were to read him spiritually. But enough of the Dr. — I expect soon to make a change what that will be we shall all learn in the sweet bye and byeEditorial Note: “The Sweet By-and-By” was a hymn with lyrics by S. Fillmore Bennett and music by Joseph P. Webster. It was published in 1868 and became very popular.. I may see you soon I hope, can you tell me now dear when it will be convenient for you to come and see me? my heart longs for the time. I want to hear all about you all
