THE TUNNECHAPTER I
   L THRU THE AIR
   IN the extreme northeastern corner of the Lone Star
   State of Texas, about eight miles west of Texarkana,
   in a lonely farm-house on Sunday morning, June
   10th, Amelia Gordon turned over in her bed and
   watched the sunlight streaming thru the window on
   the head of her new-born son. She had always hoped
   that this, her third son, would be born on Sunday, but
   he was born late Saturday night, June 9th, 1906. A
   few months before his birth, his mother had suffered
   a severe shock on account of the death of her oldest son
   in the San Francisco earthquake in April, and for a
   time it was feared that her third son might never be
   born to live. She was happy this Sunday morning
   when she looked at her bouncing baby boy, dreamed
   of his future, and thought of what his name should be.
   Calvin Gordon, the baby’s father, had been a Captain
   in the U.S. Army in Spain. He had won distinction
   for his cool courage and daring nerve, and after the close
   of the Spanish-American war, moved from Tennessee
   to Texas. Capt. Gordon had been very much depressed
   after the loss of his eldest son in the San Francisco
   earthquake, and was very much cheered up at the birth
   of this boy, and hoped that the youngest son might fulfill
   the ambitions he had for his first born.

It had always been the custom of Calvin and Amelia
   Gordon to go to the little country church every Sunday
   morning, but this morning Capt. Gordon remained with
   his wife so that they could talk over the naming of
   their son. Capt. Gordon suggested the name “Robert,”
   which was the name of his father, and his wife quickly
   acquiesced, so the baby was named Robert.
   Amelia Gordon was a great Bible student, and had
   always hoped that she would have a son born who would
   be a preacher, so she thought that little Robert might
   fulfill her hopes and ambitions.
   Capt. Gordon was a farmer, growing mostly cotton
   crops on the Red River bottom lands. The following
   year, 1907, after the birth of little Robert, Capt. Gordon^s
   crops were almost a failure. The Spring was
   late and overflows damaged cotton. This, together with
   unfavorable financial conditions, caused a panic in the
   United States in the Fall of 1907. Thus the first year
   of the boy^s life started under unfavorable conditions.
   When Robert was a little over two years old, his
   mother gave birth to a girl, the first born to her, but
   still she showed great interest in Robert; talked much
   of his future and took great interest in teaching him to
   live according to the Bible.
   At about the age of five, his mother began to teach
   him the alphabet. He learned very quickly how to read
   and write, before he started to school. He was always
   willing and glad to go to Sunday School with his
   mother, took a great interest in the sermon, and what
   the Sunday School teacher had to say about the creation
   of the world, and about God’s great plan.

Little Robert went to church one day and the preacher
   took his text from 1 Thes. 4: 16-18, “For the Lord himself
   shall descend from Heaven with a shout, with the
   voice of the archangel and with the trump of God; and
   the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are
   alive and remain, shall be caught up together with them
   in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall
   we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore comfort one another
   with these words.”
   Robert was very much interested in this sermon, and
   asked his mother to explain how the Lord could descend
   from Heaven and what kind of vehicle we would ride
   in if we were caught up in the clouds to meet the Lord
   in the air. His mind puzzled over this for weeks and
   months, and he was anxious to understand more about
   it. He said, "Mother, I should like to meet the Lord
   in the air.”
   His mother said, “You will be able to do so some
   day, Bobbie.”
   When in Sunday School one day, the teacher read
   from 2 Thes. 1: 7-8, “And to you who are troubled rest
   with us; when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from
   Heaven with his mighty angels, in flaming fire taking
   vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey
   not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.” The preacher
   said that the Lord had placed the rainbow in the sky
   as a testimony that he would never again destroy the
   world by water, but explained that God would come
   again in a flame of fire and thus take vengeance on
   those who did not believe and destroy the world by fire.
   Robert wanted to know if the good Lord who loves us

so much would destroy the world and all of those in
   it. His mother explained that God would destroy those
   that were sinners and rebelled against him and had not
   accepted his word.
   Bobbie was in Sunday School again and heard them
   read from 1 Tim. 2: 11-14: “Let the woman learn in
   silence with all subjection. But I suffer not a woman
   to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to
   be in silence. For Adam was first formed, then Eve.
   And Adam was not deceived; but the woman being
   deceived, was in the transgression.” He asked the
   Sunday School teacher to explain what this meant, -- by
   learning in silence and subjection. He also wanted an
   explanation of the statement that a woman should not
   teach, because he said that his mother had always taught
   him and loved him, and his father had paid no attention
   to him and had no desire to teach him. He wanted
   to know if it was wrong for his mother to teach him,
   and if God would punish her. The teacher replied that
   the Lord said, “Suffer the little children to come unto
   me, and forbid them not, for of such is the Kingdom
   of God.” She explained that his mother set an example
   more by her love and devotion than by words; that a
   mother^s actions would influence a child more than anything
   she could say, and this was the great silent
   teaching.
   Robert often visited the colored mammies on the plantation
   and listened to the ghost stories they told, and the
   fear was created in his mind of the spirits that walked
   in the night. He was often afraid that the goblins
   would get him if he didn^t watch out. One Sunday at
5
church, the preacher took for his text Gen. 1: 7, “For
   God has not given us the spirit of fear, but of power
   and of love and of a sound mind.” When Robert heard
   this, he wanted to know how it was that we should fear
   things, if God had not given us the spirit of fear nor
   created the spirit of fear in us, but gave us a spirit of
   power and of love and of sound mind. His mother
   explained to him that the ghost and the fear of the dark
   which the old darkies told him about, were nothing but
   superstition, and he should banish it from his mind.
   A few Sundays later, the minister took his text from
   2 Tim. 3: 1, “This know also, that in the last days perilous
   times shall come.” Robert was anxious to know
   when the last days would come. His mother told him
   it would be at the time of the end of the world and God
   would again come to destroy the world by fire.
   The minister continued to read from 2 Tim. 3: 15,
   “And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures,
   which are able to make thee wise unto salvation
   through faith which is in Christ Jesus.” Robert was
   desirous of knowing if children could teach more about
   the scriptures than grown people. His mother told him
   that the Bible said, “A little child shall lead them,”
   and that anyone who would harm little children, can
   in no wise enter into the Kingdom of Heaven.

CHAPTER II
   IN 1913, Robert suffered a severe illness in the
   Spring, and for a few months his life was despaired
   of, but he quickly recovered. Soon after his recovery,
   his father took him on a fishing trip to Spirit Lake.
   The old darky of slavery days went along, and while
   he was putting worms on Robert’s hook, told the story
   about this lake and why it was named “Spirit Lake.”
   The old darky said that the spirit of a beautiful lady
   walked on the waters of the lake at night and that was
   why they called it Spirit Lake.
   Long, long years ago, the daughter of a wealthy
   planter fell in love with a poor but honest boy and after
   many years of courtship, in which they spent many
   moonlight nights rowing on the beautiful lake, the time
   came when they felt that they could no longer be separated.
   The young man pleaded with her father to consent
   to their marriage, but he stubbornly refused and
   threatened to kill the young man if he ever called at
   his home again. They then planned to elope one night,
   and as her sweetheart was placing a ladder under the
   window and helping her to get down, her father shot
   her lover and killed him. When she found that he was
   dead, she ran to the lake and drowned herself. They
   searched for days for her body and one moonlight night
   they saw her walking on the water. They rowed out
7
on the lake and found her body floating on the water.
   He said that the fish would always bite better at full
   moon, but the darkies were afraid to fish there because
   the spirit of this beautiful young lady walked on the
   water.
   Bobbie came home very much interested and excited
   and told his mother all about the fish they caught at
   Spirit Lake and about the story old Moses told him
   about the spirit walking on the water. He told his
   mother that the Sunday School teacher had read in the
   Bible where Christ walked on the water, and he wanted
   her to explain how this could happen. She told him
   that all of those things happened in the days of miracles
   which had passed and no longer happened in these days.
   Bobbie had a great desire to walk or ride upon the
   water, and was enthusiastic about bicycles. He told
   his mother that he intended to build a bicycle some day
   that he could ride on the water.
   In 1914, when war broke out, Capt. Gordon, who
   had once served in the Spanish-American War, became
   very much interested in the conflict and followed it very
   closely, reading the papers daily and talking about it.
   Robert soon began to take great interest in the war and
   asked his father and mother many questions about the
   foreign countries which were involved in the great struggle.
   He would sit for hours, listening to his mother
   read the Bible, from the Book of Revelation, the prophecies
   of the Great War, where it says that nation shall
   rise against nation.
   Robert’s mother told him of his grandfather who distinguished
   himself in the Civil War, and the great hard-
8
ships her mother had to go thru during the war
   days; how her great-grandfather fought in the War of
   1812. She talked of his grandfather, Colonel Robert
   Gordon, for whom he was named, and how he became
   famous during the Civil War, and how later Robert’s
   own father went with Colonel Roosevelt and became a
   Captain in the Spanish-American War in 1898. Robert’s
   oldest brother, Herbert, was born in 1894, and
   his second brother, Ralph, was born in 1898 after his
   father went to the war. His mother spent many anxious
   months and worried with the children while Capt. Gordon
   was away at war. She prayed that war would be
   ended for all time.
   She said, “Bobbie, you come from a generation of
   fighters on both sides, but I hope that you will be a
   minister and preach against war. While the tragic
   death of your brother Herbert in San Francisco was
   a shock that I have never fully recovered from, yet I
   had rather know that he went that way than to have
   him go to war and lose his life. I remember well the
   many sleepless nights that I have passed thru while
   your father was away at war and how happy I was
   when he returned. I prayed to God then that war might
   be ended and that none of my sons would ever have to
   go to war.”
   “Mother,” said Bobbie, “when I get to be a man, I
   will be a preacher and tell the people to be peaceful and
   stop fighting, but why doesn’t God stop the war?”
   “My son, war is the work of the devil, not of God,
   and the Bible tells us that the old dragon has to be loosed
   for a little season, but in the Book of Revelation, we
   9
read that Satan is bound for a thousand years. I hope
   I live to see that day and I feel sure you will. A few
   nights before you were born I had a very strange dream.
   I thought I saw San Francisco and Los Angeles destroyed
   in two days by some war machine, and that
   one of my sons came near losing his life there, but was
   saved and afterwards he saved his country and made
   peace with the world. I suppose I dreamed about San
   Francisco because Herbert lost his life there but, somehow,
   I feel that it was more than a dream, and that
   you are born to be a peacemaker.”
   Bobbie was greatly impressed with his mother’s
   dream and her hopes and ambitions for him, but his
   brother would quarrel and try to fight with him. Bobbie
   would tell him that Dad wanted him to be peaceful
   and that his mother wanted him to be a peacemaker
   and that he would not fight. His brother called him
   “Cottonhead” because his hair was so white, and accused
   him of being a white-livered coward, but Bobbie was
   patient and did not lose his temper. His mother would
   commend him for this and tell him that the Bible said
   to control your temper and not let your angry passions
   rise.
   About this time some of the prejudice which little
   Robert had inherited from his grandfather and from his
   father, began to show forth. Unfavorable conditions
   thruout the country and the low price of cotton left
   Capt. Gordon practically penniless, causing him and
   all of his children to labor hard in order to support
   themselves. He tried to force young Robert to work in
   the fields and help cultivate the cotton, but he stubbornly
10
rebelled. He would play around the house, use his
   father’s tools and talk about the great inventions that
   he was going to make. His mother was always in
   sympathy with Robert and tried to encourage him, but
   she could never get him to take an interest in working
   on a farm. He talked of being a preacher, talked of
   great inventions and discoveries, but would not work
   at hard labor.
   In 1917, when the United States entered the World
   War, young Robert was eleven years old. He had great
   ambitions to join the Army and go to the war. His
   older brother Ralph joined the Army. Young Robert
   said that if he could not go and fight for his country
   he would stay at home and work on a patent which
   would help them to win the war. He did not agree or
   get along with his older brother and was glad when he
   had gone away to war. His parents were still in poor
   circumstances but they could not induce young Robert
   to do any work on the farm. He continued to tinker
   around and work with his father’s tools, trying to make
   a bicycle which he could ride upon the water in the
   lake nearby. He tried various kinds of lumber to build
   wheels for the bicycle but none of them worked successfully.
   Finally his mother suggested that he use thin
   cedar boards because cedar was durable in the water,
   was light and would float easily. He finally succeeded
   in building the wheels out of cedar and after heating
   pine rosin hot and pouring it into the cracks, he was
   able to ride successfully across the lake, but in a short
   time the wheels sprung a leak and the bicycle sunk with
11
him in the lake, but he swam out and brought the bicycle
   with him.
   Bobbie was not the kind to be discouraged by obstacles
   and later his ingenuity overcame the difficulties. After
   trying to put inner tubes from bicycle tires on the inside
   of the wheels of his water bicycle and failing again,
   he finally got some inner tubes from an automobile and
   placed them inside his wooden wheels and pumped them
   up. When they were filled with air, they pushed against
   the wooden sides of the wheel, buoying up the wheel, and
   he was then able to ride his bicycle around over the
   lake without any trouble.
   His mother was very proud of him and said “Bobbie,
   one day your dream of becoming a great inventor will
   he realized. You have not been wasting your time
   tinkering around with your father’s tools trying to make
   things.” His brother, Ralph, continued to call him
   “Fool Bobbie” and “Mother’s dream”; said he would
   never amount to anything because he wouldn’t work on
   the farm like the rest of them. Bobbie always found
   a willing listener in his mother. She helped him with
   his studies in school and encouraged him in every way
   and showed that she believed in him and had faith that
   one day he would be a great man. This encouraged him
   to do greater things.
   The success with the water bicycle had kindled his
   ambition and created a desire to complete other inventions
   that he had in mind. He told his mother of a
   dream he had of a white-winged bird that flew across
   the ocean thru the air; that he was riding the bird
   12
and that he received a great triumph and reception when
   he visited the foreign countries, and how his own people
   received him in great glory when he returned. His
   father called these stories “pipe dreams,” but his
   mother took great interest in them and always encouraged
   him. Robert talked very little to his father or
   brother but always went to his mother and talked over
   things and confided in her. She encouraged him because
   she felt that he was an answer to her prayer,
   after her eldest son had died, -- that God might
   give her another son who would live and that she might
   have her desires and hopes realized which were lost
   thru the death of her eldest son.
   Robert was entirely strange and different from other
   boys. He never seemed to want to play with them, but
   kept very much by himself; talked along different lines,
   and made a confidant of his mother only. She seemed
   to understand him as no one else did and he always
   came to her for an explanation of his problems, and for
   consolation in time of trouble.
   Robert’s mother ofter talked to Capt. Gordon about
   him -- told him that he was a peculiar and most unusual
   child and that she thought that his refusal to work at
   manual labor was not because he was lazy but because
   she believed that he had a superior mind, and that if
   properly educated and trained, he would become a great
   man some day, an honor to his parents. She told him
   that Bobbie had advanced ideas fully a hundred years
   ahead of his time and that he should be educated and
   allowed to follow his own ideas. His father, failing
   to understand him, agreed with his mother and decided
13
when Robert was about thirteen years of age, that there
   was no use trying to keep him on the farm, but that
   he should be sent away to Texarkana to school, to learn
   something and to become interested in the things along
   which his mind seemed to lead.
   While in this school he met his first real boy chum,
   one who seemed to understand him and one who proved
   to be a help to him in school. Walter Kennelworth
   was the son of a wealthy lumberman. He had every
   advantage that money could bring and was far advanced
   in his studies, thus being able to render help to Robert,
   who had no interest in grammar but took a great interest
   in history and mathematics. Walter would help him
   with his work in grammar and geography. They became
   fast friends. Robert told Walter of his plans for
   the future; that he hoped to be a great inventor; wanted
   to get an education and travel around the world to see
   the country and learn about things and develop the
   ideas which he thought would help his country in time
   of war. He had heard so many stories about his grandfather’s
   adventures in the Civil War and his father’s
   experiences in the Spanish-American War that he had
   the desire to be a great soldier and serve his country.
   He spent nearly all of his time reading the newspapers
   and following the progress of the war. He was extremely
   interested in the victories of our boys overseas,
   and when they began to turn the tide against the Germans,
   he was greatly elated and told his mother that he
   knew that the Stars and Stripes would never trail the
   dust and that victory was sure as soon as the American
   boys went on the other side.
   14
Walter Kennelworth also had ambitions of becoming
   a soldier and of making new discoveries and inventions
   along chemical lines. His hopes and aspirations were
   to one day become a great chemist. The vast difference
   in the environment and conditions under which these
   two boys had been brought up seemed to make no difference
   in their friendship. It ripened as the years
   went by. Robert and Walter were often together and
   Walter often invited Robert to his father’s home. Walter’s
   father and mother became very fond of Robert.
   When the armistice came in 1918, Robert talked with
   his mother and father, asking them if that would be
   the last war. They, of course, expressed the hope that
   it would be, and Robert said that he had read the Bible
   and thought that the greatest war in history was yet to
   come. He began to express ideas about new inventions
   years ahead of the times. He begged his father and
   mother to let him leave school and go to work in an
   automobile factory where he could learn about machinery
   and understand how to complete the inventions
   which he was always talking about.
   School was over in the Summer of 1919, and Mr.
   J. H. Kennelworth, Walter’s father, offered Robert a
   position in his office during the summer months. After
   business, Walter and Robert would often go out automobile
   riding. Along in July, he met with a serious
   accident. The automobile was overturned and Robert’s
   arm was broken, and he suffered internal injuries. He
   was taken to the hospital where he lay for several weeks
   before recovery. His mother was very much worried
   and alarmed over this accident, and thought it was best
15
for Bobbie to return to the farm and not work in the
   city any more.
   His brother Ralph had just returned from France,
   where he had met with many obstacles in the war but
   had received no serious injury. Robert went home for
   a rest after the accident. He had many disagreements
   and fights with his older brother, and it seemed to be
   impossible to get along. All of the trouble occurred over
   the fact that Robert would not work on the farm, or
   help his brother.
   Bobbie prevailed upon his mother to let him go back
   to school in the Fall because he was making great progress
   and hoped to have a big position some day with
   Mr. Kennelworth’s firm.
   In the Fall of 1919, he returned to school, but made
   slow progress in his studies. His health was not good;
   he seemed unable to concentrate or make much progress.
   He barely passed his examinations at the end of the
   year, but continued to study hard and make progress in
   mathematics and history. In grammar, writing and
   geography he was always falling below his marks, and
   Walter Kennelworth had to help him out.
   In the Spring of 1920, just before the close of school,
   Robert’s father obtained help to cultivate the cotton
   plantation. He thought it best that Robert should come
   home that summer and help to work on the farm, but
   again the boy refused, and met with stubborn opposition
   and abuse from his brother, who called him “the fool
   inventor” and said that he would never amount to anything
   because he refused to work on the farm. He said
   that he wanted to be “Gentleman Robert,” and called
16
him the “white-collar boy.” These disagreements and
   disputes with his brother were very annoying and disappointing
   to Robert’s mother, because she wanted the
   children to get along in peace. Robert told his mother
   that on account of his brother he would never live at
   home again; that he would continue to stay in Texarkana
   and go to school until he had finished his education,
   and then he would go to work for Mr. Kennelworth.
   His mother had great faith in him and told him
   that she knew everything would come out all right for
   him, and that he should study hard, make the most of
   his opportunities, and prepare for the position Mr.
   Kennelworth was going to give him upon completing
   his studies.
   Capt. Gordon had been very successful during the
   war growing cotton. Prices had gone very high and
   he had accumulated quite a little money. But in 1920
   cotton prices declined rapidly and his cotton brought
   very little, which again reduced them to poor circumstances.
   Robert became very ill again from malaria
   during the Spring and Summer of 1920, so that he was
   unable to work even if he wanted to. Up to this time
   he had shown no ambition for any kind of work, except
   to try to make something with his father’s tools; talk
   about inventions and some of the great things he was
   going to do in the years to come. His mother had always
   petted him because of his severe illnesses and
   accident, and his father often referred to him as his
   mother’s burden or his mother’s problem. But she had
   great faith in young Robert because he clung so strongly
   to religion, believing in the Bible. Robert would spend

days and hours reading the Bible and talking to his
mother and asking her questions about it and its meaning.
He had a great desire to travel and see the world
and was always planning to visit strange places. While
he showed great affection for his mother, his desire was
to get away and see the world.

CHAPTER III
N the Spring of 1921, Robert began to make greater
progress in his studies, which greatly encouraged
his chum, Walter Kennelworth. Robert would study
and read early and late. Walter would often call on
him in his room and find him there deeply engrossed
reading the Bible and puzzling over the interpretation
of the meaning of many parts of the Scriptures.
One Sunday in the early part of June, Robert and
Walter went to church and the minister took for his
text 1 Cor. 13: 2, “And though I have the gift of
prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge;
and though I have all faith, so that I could remove
mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing.” Then
the minister read from the 7th verse, “Beareth all
things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth
all things,” and again from the 11th verse, “When I
was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child,
I thought as a child; but when I became a man, I put
away childish things.” The minister further read from
the 13th verse, “And now abideth faith, hope, love, these
three; but the greatest of these is love.” Again he
read from 2 Cor. 5: 7, “For we walk by faith, not by
sight,” and concluded the reading of the text from Gal.
5: 14, “For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in
this, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.”

19
The minister preached a great sermon. Robert
thought it one of the best he had ever heard and one
which impressed him the most. The minister talked
about the great work of faith and said that faith without
works is dead; but that there could be no faith without
love because love was the greatest of all things. That
God was love, and that love was the fulfilling of the
law, “For God so loved the world that he gave his only
begotten son that whomsoever believeth on Him might
not perish, but have everlasting life.” He added that
God loves children who honor and obey their parents,
wives who love and obey their husbands, husbands who
love and protect their wives, and admonished each man
to love his neighbor as himself. Because love is the law
of harmony, and the power that created the universe,
it is the only power that can prevent destruction, war
and human death, but with true love we can overcome
the last great enemy, death.
When men love each other as God loves them, there
will be no longer any strife or contention. Man will
no longer covet what belongs to his neighbor. True love
will deal justly and do unto others as we wish to have
them do unto us. He preached about the ambitions, the
love of country and patriotism which inspires men to go
to battle and give their lives for the protection of their
home and country. He said, “Greater love hath no man
than this, that he lay down his life for his friend,” and
that a great reward was sure to come to those who love
and obey God. He talked of God’s great command, “If
you love me, keep my commandments.”
This sermon stirred Robert’s ambition as nothing else

had ever done before. It made him realize the love
that he owed to his mother, whose great faith and love
had helped to lay the foundation for his future career.
He thought about what the preacher said -- that a man
deserts father and mother to cleave unto his wife, and
that this was as it should be. He had always felt his
greatest love for his mother, but now for the first time
in his life he began to think of love for another woman.
His mind turned toward the many beautiful girls
that he used to meet in Sunday School and those who
were in his class. Robert’s chum, Walter, had already
had a puppy love affair in school with a girl by the
name of Caroline Oglethorpe. Robert had laughed
at Walter about this and thought it was all foolishness.
But now he began to think that maybe there was something
more to love than what he had heretofore believed
it to be. Walter Kennelworth's family being one of
the most wealthy and prominent in Texarkana, they
were at all the social functions, at which Robert met all
the younger set in the city.
A few weeks after the minister had preached this
sermon on charity and love, Robert was in church one
morning, and after Sunday School, was talking with
Caroline Oglethorpe, and with her was her chum, Marie
Stanton. Walter introduced Robert to Marie. Marie
was the daughter of a wealthy and prominent family.
Her father, Colonel Stanton, had made a fortune in
building railroads. He was now a big lumberman, and
one of the most prominent in Texarkana. Marie was
a beautiful young girl of about thirteen years of age
when Robert met her. She was of the true brunette

type, with glossy black hair and dark eyes that sparkled
like diamonds.
About this time, Robert began to read novels and love
stories and became very much interested in them, always
taking strong sides with the hero and becoming
very much agitated and aroused against the villain.
He saw Marie frequently after this, as she attended the
same school as Robert and Walter. Every time that
Robert saw Marie, she looked more beautiful to him.
Robert soon began to lose sleep thinking about Marie,
and realized that love was the greatest thing in the
world. He confided his secret to his friend, Walter.
Being very bashful, he had never said anything about
his love to Marie. Finally he made up his mind one
night that he would write her about it, so this is what
he wrote:
Wednesday Eve.
DEAR MARIE,
You probably remember several weeks ago, when I was
introduced to you in church, the sermon that the minister
preached and his text from St. Paul where he said, “The greatest
thing in the world is love.” I agree with St. Paul; that
is why I am writing to you.
I liked you the first time I met you, and every time I have
seen you since, I have liked you more. Now that I know I
love you so much, I feel that I must tell you. I hope that
you are going to love me some day.
Your friend,
ROBERT.
Marie replied to the letter as follows:
DEAR ROBERT,
I received your nice note. This is the first time that anyone
has ever written to me about love and I am all excited over it.
