Dear Mrs. Stanford,

Please pardon
me for intruding at this time,
but I only wish to tell you
how very much I sympathize
with you in your sad trouble.

I enjoyed the privileges of the
University for one brief, happy

interest in everything that
touches you, to whom we are
so greatly indebted, and to
whom we can return little

He would have thee fondly nestling
Closer to His loving breast,
He would have that world seem brighter
Where alone is perfect rest.

"Though His wise and loving purpose
Clearly now thou mayst not see,
Still believe with faith unshaken
All shall work for good to thee,
Therefore when thy way seems darkest,
And thine eyes with tears are dim,
Straight to God thy Father hastening,
Tell thy sorrows unto Him."

By and by all will be brightness
and joy, when we see "the King in
His beauty," and when we rest from
all our earthly trials, and never
more be separated from our loved

That the dear Lord may comfort
and strengthen you with the love
wherewith He comforteth His own,
and bless you very abundantly,
is the earnest prayer of

Yours with tender sympathy.

Henrietta H. Martin.
