05May1864, Sweet Converse

OSBORNE, Ascension Day, May 5th, 1864.
—Heavy soft showers. F. came to breakfast ; then we had another little talk ; then he came to church with Mrs. Bruce and me : then again we had "sweet converse" till he had to go off with the messenger at 1½. Oh, ardent, overflowing lovingkindness is round us ! giving us these two days' happiness over and above, when already we were so very happy ! Life felt a little flat after he had vanished.
