A letter from Margaret White to her mother, regarding her and her husband Ralph’s “sinless” life of chastity. It reads: “the oney [sic] way you & That Man can avoid the Rain of Blood yet to come. Ralph & I, like Mary & Joseph, will neither know or polute [sic] each other’s flesh. If there is issue, let it be divine. Margaret, August 19th” Carrie was conceived later that year.
