AGAWAM MASSACHUSETTS1859 COVER AND RELIGIOUS-THEME LETTER. SCOTT #25 STAMP - POSTAL-HISTORY AGAWAM MASSACHUSETTS1859 COVER AND RELIGIOUS-THEME LETTER. SCOTT #25 STAMP

Manuscript Agawam Mss March 26 postmark on this cover with two pen marks to cancel stamp. Stamp is Scott #25 with nibbled perfs top right and left. Looks like Fannie, the sender, affixed the stamp with glue of some kind. Cover and flap are complete but soiled (see scan). Letter is very interesting. Apparently Sister Mary had questioned Fannie's faith to which she replies: "You ask if I am willing to forsake all and follow the Lamb withersoever he leadeth!" I feel, dear Mary, that I am and also that I am truly accepted of God as one of his children. Shall I tell you why I feel this assured. Last Sabbath I thought a great deal upon that question, more than I have ever done before. In the morning I could not fix my attention on the discourse at all, I must think of that question. Service was nearly through and I wondered how I could be so unwise as to parley longer with temptation; when God was so good to me how could I refuse him anything? I bowed my head in prayer and gave myself wholly up to him, knowing he would do all things well. Immediately a flood of light and joy seemed to fill my soul and I felt that I was accepted." She continues to discuss her religious ferver throughout the four page letter. Easy to read and well worth reading.
