“…but the ties of love are strong..”

Have been up to the depot met John. but how changed my feelings when I found after nearly a weeks separation he had a desire to be with those he left and found it hard to tear himself from them but the ties of love are strong.. John passed the evening with me.. have I judged him right time will determine..” – Hattie E.F. D.
