Here's a transcription of this letter:
I trust you are strong in faith in God's promise this morning - believing to have His full promise accomplished in His way. It doth not yet appear what we shall be - for we see this a glass darkly but then face to face, and now can say to glorify Thee in the healing power let it now be manifested to Thy glory - a full consecration, a full abandon of self-clay in the hands of the Potter and their abide till the union is complete between you and Christ, it at once, Amen - if He should seem to tarry, still the offering we make in His name we'll never take back - no longer our own - bought with a price - On this my soul relies "Jesus they promise never dies." This has been my comfort and strength thru the night - and thru the day. I'll here abide and will surely remember the hour 3-30-P.M. O God give faith in all the borders Amen - and let the manifestation be accomplished in His way and not in ours only in perfect accord with His will.
