Seite 188 - God Almighty, who is goodness itself, the true light and life, keep you and yours, and have mercy upon me, and forgive my persecutors, and false accusers: and send us to meet in his glorious kingdom. My dear wife, farewell; bless my boy: pray for me; and let my true God hold you both in his arms.
