Greenfield. Mass.

June 26th 1893

Dear Mrs. Stanford.

The terrible blow has fallen and you are alone through the remainder of your earthly pilgrimage. Only, only too well I know all the desolation, the bitterness, the woe of widowhood. No loss like that of a beloved companion in its bitter desolation. May His Mighty Arms hold you up and shelter you unto the End. Oh! what a meeting it will be on that other side "across the Shining Shore"? I am wondering in all the mystery of the "Great Unseen", who have already met? My heart is overwhelmed within me and words are too poor.


given my heart of hearts! You kindly wished me "Good health" - am sorry to have to say, since I had the Grippe a year ago, I have been afflicted with rheumalism, effecting my knees; but I am not crippled and dare not complain. Yet with my always active locomotion it has been and is a sore trial to me, this stiffness and lameness. Am better and hope for a summer's recovery. A limited income will not admit of much travel or I should soon seek change of scene and climate. I would joy to go to California once more if it could be. It will not do for me to let my thoughts wander and I must "be still".

May our Loving Heavenly Father shield and comfort you and bear us bravely on to the Great End, receiving us at last into His Heavenly Fold. May God permit us to meet again face to face. I know you are surrounded by all Earth can give, but, none can better understand or more deeply feel your woe, than your truly sorrowing friend.

Anna Judah
