Dec. 31st (1882) How kind Tom is. What a strong support, he trusts in God, has daily committed me to His care before leaving in the morning. Prayed constantly for me and kept me from all anxiety. Now he consoles, assists, does all in his power. May our future years be as happy as this has been. I want him not to have much interruption to domestic comfort in the future. But God knows what is best for each. May he bring us safely through all and we will raise our Ebenezer of gratitude and delight.
