TO LAURENCE KRIEG: On Lewis’s confidence in Jesus’ knowing best with respect to Joy’s health prospects; and on his sadness, shared with a boy Douglas’s age.
21 April 1957
Well, I can’t say I have had a happy Easter, for I have lately got married and my wife is very, very ill. I am sure Aslan knows best and whether He leaves her with me or takes her to His own country, He will do what is right. But of course it makes me very sad. I am sure you and your mother will pray for us.
