In remembrance of my twin brother. I regret not being able to spend more time with you in the last few years. I think of you when I read these words: O Son of Spirit! My first counsel is this: Possess a pure, kindly and radiant heart, that thine may be a sovereignty ancient, imperishable and everlasting.
