To which I replied, I should have been pleased had not occurrences and information forced on me views of your friendship, quite at variance with your profession.

At the time I was married joy, peace, and comfort constantly dwelt on the voice apparently pleased and overjoyed that I calculated to settle in this place, etc. I could but thank them for so much goodness, but could not believe caution is the parent of safety. Reality is better than fiction.
