"My friends, no one, ...can appreciate my feeling of sadness at this parting. To this place, and the kindness of these people, I owe everything. I now leave, not knowing when, or whether ever, I may return. Without the assistance of the Divine Being who ever attended him, I cannot succeed. With that assistance I cannot fail. Trusting in Him who can go with me, and remain with you, and be everywhere for good, let us confidently hope that all will yet be well. To His care commending you, as I hope in your prayers you will commend me, I bid you an affectionate farewell."
