F.N. is much pressed today, but cannot help writing a hurried word; they have no plans and F.N. cannot imagine what they will do; Emily Verney used to say in her last illness that the greatest trial of all was not to know; it is quite useless for either A.L.P. or F.N. to take upon themselves the solution of this enormous difficulty, they must leave it to God; F.N. recalls the great London Theatre which was burnt down at a Christmas pantomime - the poor clown and the poor pantaloon were the heroes then, who were at their duty and saved the ballet dancers and children while the selfish audience almost jostled each other to death; God's call to His work.
Extract, A.L.P.'s notebook GTER. LOND. REC. OFF.
