Letter 3 - History of South Africa - September 1947

All,

Willie Brown told us about these lepers and the story of the blind leper loving the man he had never seen, and added that faith is the most beautiful thing in the world. Alec Pearce spoke at one of their funerals and said, "Heaven was richer, but earth was poorer when he died.. God couldn't trust me to have gone to that leper colony."
