What a dreadful set the Gascoyne River lot are. Its dreadful to know in this the time of so much gospel knowledge that they have no regard for the Sabbath. Surely they need missionaries and ministers there as much as in the heathen lands [...] Now darling I want you to give me a good scolding for something I wrote to you in my last letter about total abstinence. On reading over your diary I can see my darling is as strict as ever, and I am very sorry I ever wrote about it to you, for I am afraid you will think I have not sufficient trust in you. I am very sorry if I have pained you and I am afraid I have. Tell me I am a very naughty girl for writing such a thing and try and forgive your penitent little girl.
