2 You said in your letter that time to store wisdom bins was precious truly John you said the truth for our lives even
with old age (which is not every ones) is very short for soon the place that knows us now will know us no more for every and
but? a mile when compared with eternity for as one said could some unknown bird come from some unknown region every thousand
year and take one small particle of dust away from this earth by the time the whole earth was removed it would but be the
beginning of eternity although it would take thousands of thousands of years to remove even one small handful and then to
look at one of the hills and think of the time it would take to remove it we would be apt to say it would take forever.
3 But I believe John I wont tell you any more of my secrets for you don't have any pity for me I suppose it is because
you are more a dreamer? in the de illigibleness but If the old illegible had illegible through the ground And seen you at
the beginning it The'd have though you were trembling and blushing for fun And her wonder at the beginning o't? Come dont
hurt yourself laughing John Your elegy on the tree was very fine You seemed to mourn its death but I dont for it took a long
time to accomplish it, but it is down and hauled out the way the illegible abogle broke one sledge but we made another with
some pump illegible in it and if it had liken too we would have had to buried it or blown it up with powder.
