Two letters Andrew wrote to his wife Jean.

Contributor: onredroads Created: 3 years ago Updated: 1 year ago

(The following letter was written by Andrew Hunter Scott III to his wife Jean Park Scott. The original letter was hand written. This typed up copy was found with a copy of the original. The typed up copy was just as he wrote it except the last sentence, which was written along the side of the page, and mixed with the words at the ends of the lines. It was difficult to tell what it said, so I just typed it up as the person copying it had done. Connie Hopkins Tolman, her GreatGrandaughter ~ Jan 1015) Eureka 8/16 Dearest Wife, Just got your letter. You sure must have forgotten if you looked for me Sunday. Am sorry to hear that you have fallen back into the old way of thinking. I saw when I was there that you had been thinking wrongly about hell, but thought you would over come it yourself. Do not let things worry you because you cannot help them one bit, by worrying yourself. I know it seemed hard for me to realize that fact or truth, when the opposite had been pumped into me so long, and seemed so much easier to get, but it would be much harder to go back now after what Science has showed me, I think of know what is holding you just now. And there is one question I would like to ask, consider that you interested me in this study, and expressed the wish that I try it. I listened to you, and look at the the great benefit I have received. In God you live, more, and have your being, without him you cannot do one thing. and worry and fretting are not one of His attributes. There is nothing real about our trouble, except the awful misconception that you are sick. You know that you are created in his image and sickness, can you conceive of a sick or sinful God. What is the use of being sick when this world is so full of health. Why my dearest, health is all around you waiting for you to help. Had I listened to my folks and your’s I would have been in the same place yet. Now are you ready to cast all prejudice, animosity, and truth, or Love. I believe that you are, and I know that you will find him ready and willing to assist you. You are allright now only that you see yourself in darkness instead of light. It is mail time, write and tell me every thing and what you what to do. Will be down with Jack, I hope. Love xxx all you asked If you can get anyone to paper go ahead have not stretched it, had forgot about it. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ (The following letter was written by Andrew Hunter Scott to his wife Jean Park Scott. It has been typed up just as he wrote it.) My Darling Wife, March 14, 1909 I am afraid if I had talked to you very much longer, I would have been on my road to you by now, the freight was coming up just about that time, if you could have seen me setting all alone on the dump looking over that way, you would have known that you were not the only one that had the blues. I love to talk to you when you say you are feeling fine and having a good time, but when you talk like you did today, it makes me feel like I do not know what to do. It is hard to stay here and fight my own longing to come to you, but when I hear your dear sweet voice asking me to come it is just about to many (much) for me. Sometimes I think to h___ with this place. I am going home. Then when the thought comes that you and the kids are depending on me I say, “Patsy I guess you will have to say.” (stay) I would love to have you over here, but I am afraid to. You are the only wife I have, and the only one I want and don’t want you here if it is going to make you sick. What have I done that you can’t get along without me? You did not seem to care so much a year or so ago. Wished I did have some kind of job down there so I could be with you all the time. Thought if you got better you would not mind living there so much. Well, be careful how you tempt me or you will have me down there on your hands yet. xxxxxxxxxx

Andrew H. Scott Jr. was 28 years old when Albert Einstein publishes his first paper on the special theory of relativity. Albert Einstein was a German-born theoretical physicist who developed the theory of relativity, one of the two pillars of modern physics. His work is also known for its influence on the philosophy of science. He is best known to the general public for his mass–energy equivalence formula E = mc2, which has been dubbed "the world's most famous equation". He received the 1921 Nobel Prize in Physics "for his services to theoretical physics, and especially for his discovery of the law of the photoelectric effect", a pivotal step in the development of quantum theory.
Andrew H. Scott Jr. was 39 years old when Tsar Nicholas II of Russia was forced to abdicate in the February Revolution, ending three centuries of Romanov rule. Nicholas II or Nikolai II, known as Saint Nicholas in the Russian Orthodox Church, was the last Emperor of Russia, ruling from 1 November 1894 until his forced abdication on 15 March 1917. His reign saw the fall of the Russian Empire from one of the foremost great powers of the world to economic and military collapse. He was given the nickname Nicholas the Bloody or Vile Nicholas by his political adversaries due to the Khodynka Tragedy, anti-Semitic pogroms, Bloody Sunday, the violent suppression of the 1905 Russian Revolution, the executions of political opponents, and his perceived responsibility for the Russo-Japanese War (1904-1905). Soviet historians portray Nicholas as a weak and incompetent leader whose decisions led to military defeats and the deaths of millions of his subjects.
