Cornelius, I would very much like to visit not only your parents and family in Barrydale, but also you yourself in the Buffeljag’s Prison, before I return to Australia. May I, please? I shall phone the Prison in a few days, and ask them whether you are again willing to receive me, and also whether the Head of the Prison will give his friendly permission.
In the meantime, I am hereby enclosing a further two things for you. Firstly, the old 1994 burial letter which was read out two years ago at my father’s funeral in the Church at Barrydale — together with my account of our meeting, after that, in the Swellendam Prison. Secondly, a selection of poems which I myself wrote. From them, you can see how I too struggled to come to the Lord — but also how He enabled me to find Him, and how I thereafter attempted and still try to serve Him. That is my prayer, also for you!
