    SOMERSET, N.Y., MARCH 10, 1864

    Dear Brother and Sister White: We should have acknowledged ere this the reception of the “Appeal” you so kindly sent us. We perused the book with deep interest. Whilst it was in our hearts to weep with you on account of your bereavement, we felt to rejoice with you in view of Henry’ triumphant death. Although his death was a severe and unexpected blow to you, yet you have doubtless much greater reason for rejoicing than mourning.APYO 92.1

    Brother Smith’ sermon is excellent. Sister Patten has done credit to herself in her part of the work, for she has done it well; but what in our opinion makes the book most invaluable are those faithful letters-full of affection and parental regard-from you, sister White, to your children.APYO 92.2

    In view of your faithfulness to your children, how applicable in your present bereavement is the language of the prophet to certain weeping mothers in Israel: “Refrain thy voice from weeping, and thine eyes from tears, for thy work shall be rewarded, saith the Lord; and they shall come again from the land of the enemy. And there is hope in thine end, saith the Lord, that thy children shall come again to their own border.”APYO 92.3

    The “Appeal” ought to do good, and must do good wherever it is read, both to parents and children. We felt like dedicating anew the book, especially those letters, to our children. Every family should have a copy of the forthcoming third edition bound; or rather, every parent should obtain such copy for each one of his children. Accept our sincere thanks for the copy you sent us.
    J.M. & J.B. Aldrich.
    APYO 93.1
