(3. 9. '41)
intoxicated (see the police reports.) Poor fellow, he never was
so in his life - or even had the least propensity to it. Quite
the reverse. The Magistrate saw the whole matter as it
was, & he was kindly treated, and I have every reason
to be satisfied with the working of the system. I have
felt this time, alas, more than once - in my son's situation.
If you have a Bible with the Apocryphal Books in it, of
little value, pray give me it for my son. He is constantly
craving for one. The one he has does not satisfy him.
Poor fellow, it is rarely out of his hand. This and his
imagining himself a German prince, with the
perpetual love of doing good, are the main points
of his aberration.
