case 1686 [A] 316 W 119 Street Helena Williams New York City (see card). 27-3-33
Dear Mrs Sanger
Not withstanding your reply was delayed I hereby will explain my reason for not coming in well here is the reason it is simple this God is in the land I mean Father Divine who you no doubt has heard about, so you need not wonder about me for God is taking good care of me, he ahs taken me out of all such that means I will not have any more babies because I am not living that life
Since the fifth of May 1933 so you see what a great change has taken plance in my life it is so good to live a clean life just God want you to live that means I and my husband lives like brother and sisten now you can see it is only God could do such, so you see I don't have to use any method what ever and have no caust to come to the Clinic, and no nead for a nurse or a Doctor
I thank you
