Thomas Johnson's Note on Letter 785

MANUSCRIPT: destroyed.

PUBLICATION: L (1894) 295-296; LL 344-345; L (1931) 267.

The scripture quotation appears to have in mind John 17.24: "Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world." (See also letter no. 50.)
