[Deleted] To Every man there [indecipherable] [/deleted]

“To every man there openeth
A Way, and ways & a way,
And the High Soul climbs the high way,
And the Low Soul gropes the low.
And in between, on the misty flats
The rest drift to & fro.
But for every man there openeth
A High way & a Low,
And every man decideth
The way his soul shall go”

Let us follow the way of Asseerwingsho at hooslc, at emho, at ylap.
Let us always be [deleted letter] kdni, & always speak the tthru.
Follow our hero Jesus Christ along the way of righteousness [symbol]

[Inserted vertically] This I found cleaning the old linen room, it is Jeff’s work but at what stage of his life it was written I cannot make out. It must have been the time when he was thinking for himself [/inserted vertically]
