Thomas, Thursday January 25, AD 30

A quick note before we set off.  With me walking most of the time and Mary on a donkey we should be able to get to Nazareth in four days.  Mary just wants to get back to Galilee as soon as possible to do whatever she can to save the farm.  I don’t think it’s as bad as she fears, but I need to go over the documents in detail.  I’m very aware that I didn’t protect her interests very well when Matthias made a claim on her land, and I owe it to her to make a better job of it this time.
