My dearest Sweetheart:
We have just returned from Church and it is rather late since the minister who preached this evening is not as prompt about closing the services on time as Bro. Campbell is. Our Union revival started this evening and there was quite a crowd in the large tent, many of the people having to stand. All the Protestant churches in town are taking part, and they have a Methodist evangelist and a Baptist singer. It was a splendid sermon with a few exceptions. Really, I am opposed to evangelists as a whole as they are too sensational and are sometimes rather rough I think. It may take that kind to stir some people, but, as a rule, I think such preaching has temporary results and there usually is a reaction. I don’t believe in scaring people into Heaven. As for me, give me the calm, sincere and true preaching of the Gospel.
Your letter of the 9th came this morning. Sweetheart, I didn’t intend for you to return Mr. Cavitt’s letter as I did not care about keeping it. I was mighty glad to know of your resolution to never die. I sincerely hope you’ll keep it. No, Dear, I haven’t any desire to be left a widow. My!! It gives me the “creeps” to even think of your ever getting sick even. I love you ‘most to death though. I’d give so much to be with you this very evening, and I get so happy when I “try” to realize that I am soon going to be with you for always.
Rest assured that you will always have the love of
