The Unbeliever's Prayer

--> 19 Apr 1949 Frank Boydon to JH

Forgive me for my agnosticism;
For I shall try to keep it gentle, not cynical,
Nor a bad influence.

And O!
If thou art truly in the heavens,
Accept my gratitude
For all thy gifts
And I shall try
To fight the good fight. Amen.

John Gunther, Jr., a student at Deerfield Academy, died in 1949 at the age of 17 from a brain tumor.
