most interesting sights I have ever seen. It
is called "The Pit of Everlasting Fire." It is a
large pit several hundred feet deep and at the
bottom are small pits were [where] sulphur and hot
lava is burning all the time.

Christmas treated me very good this year.

away from their company were transferred.

Don't worry yourself that I can't read your
