I can learn nothing; a mysterious veil envelops
the unknown, who, like a spectre, stands
day and night before my anxious mind. I always
find my best comfort in the Old Testament,
and I invoke the protection of the Eternal and
His vengeance against my enemies. The psalms
of David best express my soul’s deepest needs,
and Jehovah is my God. The 86th Psalm has
made a special impression on my mind, and I
gladly repeat it.

“O God, the proud have set themselves against
me, and tyrants seek after my soul, and have not
thee before their eyes. Show me a token for
good; that all they which hate me may see it,
and be ashamed; because thou, Lord, hast holpen
me, and comforted me.”

That is the “token” I ask for, and notice
well, reader, how my prayer will be heard.
