Low On Provisions
I am afraid, Christian, you misreckon yourself when you think your provision is almost spent, and that you have a great way to travel. You think you have many years to live, and nothing to live upon; it may not be half as many as you suppose. In this be confident: if your provision is spent, either fresh supplies are coming, though you see them not from where, or you are nearer your journey’s end than you reckon yourself to be.
