W. W. MITCHELL, tiiggiliSville, Mo.:
DEAR FRIEND.-I have been here one week,
and it is just lovely. I wish you were here; I
know you would enjoy it so much. We go in
bathing every day in the sea, and it refreshes
one very much. I walk about four miles
every morning. There are a good many poo-
pie here from New York and Brooklyn. With
jolly bathing parties, the cool sea breeze, and
shady grove, it is really Paradise or earth;
and my old friends are so glad to see me, and
treat me so nicely, I feel quite at home.
The old house by the sea-shore, where I was
raised, has tumbled down, after doing service
(so I am told) for more than 200 years; but the
little spring by the rock still sends forth its
cool, sparkling waters, and one can imagine
that in the merry ripple he hears an invita-
tion to call again. Man builds, and worms
and rust devour. Ills remains return to
dust from which lie came; but the work of
God is eternal.
I visited the old church yesterday, and re-
mained to Sunday School. This is where I
attended Sunday School thirty years ago, and
when it was whispered around that I was
there, I soon had an invitation to address the
Sunday School children. While I am  not ma
good speaker in public, I do not remember a
time when I lad such enthusiasi for the oc-
casion. or felt so happy. I felt like a boy
A few days more and this dreaim will be
over, and I will be on my way home. lopiig
you are I all well, I am,  Yours truly,
1. B. LEAHY.
