“…it will be like separating the soul from the body to separate me from him for a day”
“Pleasant. Attended sabbath school and the afternoon services. Mr Coggeshall addressed us. Uncle Sanford and Aunt Caroline came down. John took tea with us and passed the evening with me. I find him dearer this evening than ever. if the love which to day, is so true I feel if it still continues to increase as it has within the past few weeks it will be like separating the soul from the body to separate me from him for a day,” – Hattie E.F. D.
