BeschreibungExcerpt from Saved by Hope
For thus saith the Lord, That after seventy years he accomplished at Babylon I will visit you, and perform my good word toward you, in causing you to return to this place. For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and of of evil, to give you an expected end. - Jeremiah 29:10, 11.
Letter-Writing like conversation is an art difficult to bring to excellence; and to achieve- an approximate perfection in either, requires a natural gift by no means common. Anyone can carry on a correspondence, but to write Cicero's letters to Atticus, or the letters of Madame de Sevigne to her daughter, or those of Lord Chesterfield to his son, or those of Horace Walpole to some of his distinguished friends, calls for a peculiar talent, a blend of qualities, a vivacity, wit, knowledge of human nature, power and range of observation and description, a happy knack of putting things, all of which rarely meet in the same person. Hence those who are famous either for their conversation or for their epistolary productions, who are classics on these lines, may be numbered without counting very high into figures.
