Opi Osiier Colt High is and 3hat from Ere an Ere am by the a Robe a an aftermath of the september Hurricane came to my attention this past week when i was Given a copy of a typewritten publication called a dreams and interpretations a weekly letter published by Robert Greer address Homestead. Prudence Island r. I. I done to know or. Greer personally but i am told that he is often referred to As a the Hermit due to his desire to live alone and far removed from other people. I remember once having visited his Little Shack on the East Shore of the Island Down near the South end. This was of course demolished by the Hurricane and or Greer now lives in a More thickly settled part of the Island where he devotes much of his time to writing and the study of the Bible for he is a deeply religious Man. In this letter of which i speak or. Greer declares that it was revealed to him in a dream that a the South wind would sweep things before it and that four lives w Ould be lost on the Island the fact that five lives were lost disturbed or Greer never before had one of his dreams proved false when correctly interpreted. But let him Tell \ Oil about it in his own words a i was much perplexed for had never before had a dream that when a Iolite to True the problem Vas shed when i was made to understand slut the fifth one could have been Saied and therefore was not counted As one who would die that poor woman could have been Saed. But 0ulv in Altwer . Prevailing , a enticing humanly possible of tour the circumstances was done that could Hae been done. A a a Quot i heard it reported that there were people trapped in the Light House keepers House. This seemed incredible for the House was we Ell in Shore and they must have seen the water rising and surrounding the place in plenty of time for them to have escaped. It was however a a True report.

A a i stood on the Shore and watched the wind and Waves beating upon that House and marvelled that it stood so Long at last when the water had reached nearly to the second floor and three old people had already drowned the keeper and his wife and a sort about fourteen years of age. Appeared at a window on the second floor. Then the House began to twist and rip oped at the Corners i saw the keeper jump from the window into the swirling Waters. The boy followed his father and was drowned. I saw the Man about rolled Over and disappear. But he came up Agrain and somehow got near enough to be helped ashore four persons perished and Tny dream was fulfilled a Little while before i had seen the three old people walking along the Road going in an i Fher direction. They waved their hand to me and w ent along laughing and chatting together. Was it fati that sent them Back to that House of death. A rotary speaker will discuss civil service act mrs Eben d.

It looked As though she would be saved because the raft began to Drift along the Shore and there seemed to be nothing to keep that from coming in like other wreckage. However desperate efforts were made to get a rope to the woman a but it was impossible. The poor woman seemed to realize her peril More clearly than i did. For looking directly at me. She raised her hand. This she did several times and i know that she was asking me to Pray for her and i did Pray spasmodic Aljy a of god help us to save that poor but that is not the Way that god wants us to the raft drifted along the Shore for about three quarters of a mile and then was stopped by some wreckage and held fast for a Little while.
