November 24, 1843; A note by Frances Few Chrystie, Mary Chrystie's mother, describing her grief at the death of her daughter the previous Spring in Nice, her own apparent experience with the "invisible world" and ministering angels in the aftermath of Mary's death, and a dream she had on May 28th, in Bologna, in which she was visited by her aunt Lizzy who told her, in response to Mrs. Chrystie's query as to whether or not Lizzy had seen Mary, "All is well" (See the "Miscellaneous Letters" series, item 9, for another description of this dream). Mrs. Chrystie concludes: "I note these things that I may keep in remembrance the goodness of the Lord to a suffering creature so comforted & so sustained. With dark events I strove/ And found when rightly understood/ All messages of love."
