Yes, yes, yes! I'm sure Ethelwynne won't mind.

Of course! Open it, Open it!

Yes! Do it, do it!

What an interesting name...I looked it up and it is an old English name for a boy. Certainly not a modern name so its been there probably a long time... thus I vote to open it.

To One In Sorrow - Grace Noll Crowell

Let me come in where you are weeping, friend,
And let me take your hand.
I, who have known a sorrow such as yours,
Can understand.

Let me come in -- I would be very still
Beside you in your grief;
I would not bid you cease your weeping, friend,
Tears can bring relief.

Let me come in -- I would only breathe a prayer,
And hold your hand,
For I have known a sorrow such as yours,
And understand.

Hmm... Makes you wonder if Ethelwynne ever read the book if he/she never opened the note. Is it possible it was opened and resealed itself over time? That happens.
