[104] devolving upon the minister's wife, with the result that her health gave way for a time.

She was privileged, as the daughter of an ardent Abolitionist, to meet many noted people, not only at her father's house, but at the home of Asa Fairbanks in Providence, a firm friend of Rev. Mr. Hunt. Through her father, she met Wendell Phillips, Charles Sumner, William Lloyd Garrison, Vice-President Henry Wilson, and many others. In 1873 she came to Somerville, where she identified herself with the Prospect Hill church, and for a number of years was actively interested in its work, filling several important positions.

During the Spanish war she was untiring in working for the relief of the soldiers. She belonged to the Volunteer Aid. Her patriotism led her to be interested in the Historical Society from its formation, and she was a constant attendant at the meetings. Miss Hunt was an extremely energetic woman; her cheerfulness during her last illness made the sick room a place where it was a delight to be. Many friends mourn her loss.
