I was surfing the net this evening, and for some reason, I got to thinking
about Martha Snell Nicholson. You see, Martha Snell Nicholson was my aunt.
She passed when I was about 10 or 11 years old, and my memory of her is very
faded, although I believe I did see her once when I was very young.
I do not know why I thought of her on this particular day, and I do not know
why I did a search of her name on the Internet. I do know that I am very pleased that
someone in this world thought enough of my aunt to feature her work on their web page.
When I was very young, I remember having copies of her work in the house. I
do not remember reading her work as a child, although her books were there.
Somewhere along the line, I remember having some of her books, although I
have no idea where they may have gotten to. I am now 54 years old, soon to
be 55, and am very aware of the mortality of my time in life. I read with
reverence, the samples of her work on your web page, and would love to read
more of her work.
I find great comfort in knowing that my aunt is so very appreciated, even in
our present day and age. I find that some of her work is as if it was just
written today. She seemed to be a very insightful woman, with a true love and devotion to
Christ. She seems to me, to have been a truly awesome woman, a woman of great
sensitivity, and truly a child of God. Someday, I will know her, in heaven.
Now, though, during my time on earth, I want to really learn all about her
that I can.
You may print this letter, if you choose, on your web page. I would truly
love to know of people that knew my aunt, that could tell me of their
encounters with her.
My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org, and I would welcome any and all
emails from anyone, anywhere in the world that knew my aunt.
Thank you so very much for your attention to this letter.
In Christ’s love,
