Additional Details

"I have your letter . . . in which you ask me for a favorite . . . quotation. The one I like much is the 15th verse of the 24th chapter of Joshua: 'And if it seem evil unto you to serve the Lord, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.'"
