dged in by dark forests, rough and lonely, but they were dear homes. The precursors of thirty million American homes. These are the gifts of the Pilgrim Mothers and Fathers of three hundred years ago. The women of the Mayflower—let us look at them now, since all who can ever be called by that name are together on the ship. Mrs. Stephen Hopkins wins regard from all. Her own little daughter Damaris and her step-daughter Constantia add to the girlhood on the boat. Mary Brewster and Susanna White set a shining mark.
