Rev. Dr. Miles Bronson, Vol-2

I watch darling papa with a great deal of anxiety. He is better than we could expect, but I can see that his great sorrow tells upon him. I often hear him weeping and praying that God may help him to be submissive and then he comes to us as cheerful; but I can see he has had a hard struggle. I try to be all a daughter can to him. Oh! If I can bring one ray of sunshine into his bleeding heart, I shall be happy! (—Marie Bronson)
