“O thou plant of the Garden of the Love of God!…”

O thou plant of the Garden of the Love of God!
Thy letter was received. Its content was of utmost grace and sweetness. As thou hast turned thy face toward the Supreme Kingdom, I hope thy disposition and nature will prove agreeable and comforting to thy brother and sister.
Although thou art small, yet I hope thou wilt become great in the Kingdom. His Highness Christ, sayeth: “Happy is the condition of the children!” God willing, thou art one of those children.
Be obedient and kind to thy father and mother, caressing brother and sister, and day by day adding to thy faith and assurance.
