Keep it always in mind that it must be through our own efforts that our progress through life shall bring with it the fulfilment of the best promise of our youth.“July 2. Oak Glen. Nurse Voshell, nicknamed by me Wollapuk, left this morning. I have become so dependent upon her that I shall miss her very much. I have been impatient of having her so long, but now see how very helpful she has been to me.” “I began to write a retrospect of my essay on ‘Distinctions between Philosophy and Religion,’ but feel that this will be of little value. Oh! that I had taken Dr. Hedge's advice and published these papers soon after they were written. As it is I have lost two of the best of them, viz.: this one just mentioned and ‘Moral Triangulation of the Third Party,’ in obligations and contrasts.” In these days she met with a grave loss in the death of Michael Anagnos. “I am deeply grieved at his death, which is a real loss to me and my family, and almost irreparable to the Institution which he has served nobly with entire devotion and disinterest and has enriched by his great and constant efforts. He built three Kindergartens for the blind. God rest his soul!” “I pray that my great pain at the death of my son-in-law may inspire me to help the blind as I never have helped them!”
