Frank Leward: Memorials
Arthur Leward to Frank
Arthur Leward to Frank.
Trinity Coll., Cambridge, June 15,1844.
My dear Brother,—I write at once to announce the good news I have just received, and which will, I am sure, page 112be particularly pleasing to you. Mabel has accepted me. I had her mother's consent, some time ago, to ask her daughter's hand, but it was only to-day I received a letter from Mabel, giving her formal promise, and assuring my happiness.
I know you, my dear brother, will rejoice in this fresh manifestation of the Lord's good-will towards me; this new proof, if proofs were wanting, that those who fear Him, and walk in His footsteps, will be watched over by Him as the apple of His eye.
Our father wrote some time ago, I believe, informing you of the disposition of the Glades estate by our late lamented grandmother, and you will remember the Greys property joins the Glades. We long to hear news of you in your new home, which, I have no doubt, will suit you well. I must not write at greater length at present, as I have so many kind Christian friends to inform of this happy intelligence. The wedding is not to take place until after I have taken my degree, by which time I shall have also attained my majority.—I remain your affectionate brother,
Arthur Church Leward.
