[378] light, the glory of which I cannot attempt to put into human words — the light of the newborn hope and sympathy-blazing. The source of this light was born of human endeavor....

She saw

the men and the women, standing side by side, shoulder to shoulder, a common lofty and indomitable purpose lighting every face with a glory not of this earth. All were advancing with one end in view, one foe to trample, one everlasting goal to gain. ...

And then I saw the victory. All of evil was gone from the earth. Misery was blotted out. Mankind was emancipated and ready to march forward in a new Era of human understanding, all-encompassing sympathy and ever-present help, the Era of perfect love, of peace passing understanding.

Mrs. Humphry Ward was in Boston this spring, and there were many pleasant festivities in her honor.

A “luncheon with Mrs. Humphry Ward at Annie Fields'; very pleasant. Edward Emerson there, easy and delightful....”

A fine reception at the Vendome, where she and Mrs. Ward stood under “a beautiful arch of roses” and exchanged greetings.

“A delightful call from Mrs. Humphry Ward. We had much talk of persons admired in England and America. She has great personal attraction, is not handsome, but very “simpatica” and is evidently wholesouled and sincere, with much “good-fellowship.” We embraced at parting.”
