Transcription:

or one who’s fitter for Heaven [than his mother, Naomi Butler Gunn]. But oh! my God let that not be yet. Let what will occur — anything but that when I again go home I may not miss the dear face that prayed to God to bless me ere I started. Oh my mother would that I could see you now. That I may be beside you in Heaven some day. God knows how unfit I am for it, though.
