Context Readings

A Letter That Caused Sadness

6 nevertheless, God who comforteth those that are cast down, gave me comfort by the arrival of Titus: not barely by his presence, 7 but by the consolation I received from you by him, when he acquainted me with your earnest desire to see me, with your concern, and your zeal for me; which greatly increas'd my joy. 8 For tho' I was sorry my letter gave you some uneasiness, I do not repent of it, perceiving, that the uneasiness you had from that letter, did not dwell upon your minds.
