My dear Jil,
Thank you for your reply. I’ll address the issues you raised in this letter. Hopefully I can pass on some wisdom.
My dear Jack,
I woke up this morning thinking about you, your circumstances and challenges. I know you spent yesterday putting out fires. Your faith was really stretched but somehow you survived! Whew! There are one or two opportunities out there and you need that one deal to come through, at least to relieve some pressure. But things seem to be slow moving and even dependent on one or two things. You know I read something from Hemingway. He said courage is grace under pressure. When I think of you that statement comes to mind.
