My dear Miss Whitney.
I would offer to you my heartfelt sympathy in your overwhelming bereavement!
You, alone, can understand my loneliness, apart from my best beloved Friend, and faithful Comforter, in all Life's ills.
It is a solace, to remember, that the dear Child, did not know that she was breaking all our Hearts.
