DEAR SISTER: . . . Dear Le Roy’s request to me shall not be unheeded. I have resolved, yes, begun to seek the Lord, and shall continue till I find him. “He is slow to anger and of great kindness.” Relying on the promise that “whosoever will seek mercy shall obtain it.” I will leave no effort untried, but will work diligently to the end. . . .
