W3698 TO REV. THOMAS BAKER from W.J. Robertson
Aug 16 1882
To: Rev. Thomas Baker 3 Bold Street Hamilton, Ontario
From: Harold, Ontario

My Dear Sir

It was with great regret I observed in the Toronto Globe the death of Mrs Baker which I am sure must be another severe trial for you; but knowing as I do your firm faith in the wisdom of our Heavenly Father who cannot err, I am sure you will be sustained by His rich promises. I tender you my sincere sympathy in this hour of trial. May the God of all grace and consolation support you in it & be with you during the remainder of your days. Your home above will have an additional attraction now. I trust goodnes & mercy may follow you until you arrive there at last, when there will be no more going out.

The past year & a half has been almost a lifetime to me. But altho' it is hard for poor weak human nature to bear the trial I have had, yet I feel it has been ordered in infinite wisdom. I will never forget your kind words of sympathy to me on that occasion.

Trusting that you have a fair measure of health and that the remaining members of your family are well. I remain my dear sir

Yours sincerely

W.J. Robertson
