15 October 1843 - Bishop Pompallier to his father-in-law (Jean-Marie Solichon), Bay of Islands
A letter from M.Solichon had told Pompallier of his mother’s death and the death of his brother Laurent, and the illness of his sister Fanny (since dead, as Pompallier had been told through another.) Pompallier tries to console Solichon by reminding him of the great truths of Christian faith. Quotes St Paul’s words to the Romans on those who love God, he turns everything to their good. (8:28).
