Siam: Kenneth's Letter: Mrs. Seigle in Nakhon, The Ruby Ring


Kenneth reads his letter in which he talks about riding on a train with Mrs. Seigle in Nakhon. She visited the Landons for a week and enjoyed the visit. He refers to Margaret wearing the Ruby Ring that once belonged to Kenneth's mother Mae. Kenneth had felt the loss of his mother three years before she actually died. That was when he departed to the mission field: mother and son knew from that time that they were not going to see each other again.
