[p. 47]

Of its excellence nothing need be said, but when she placed the same in the hands of the editor of the Register she expressed a hope that she might see the same in print. Its final revision was almost her latest work. Her wish was gratified. After the Register's publication in January, a copy was placed in her hands, to her satisfaction, before her going from us.

Her activities were not limited to her home and church. The temperance reform enlisted her sympathies; for many years she labored in the Women's Christian Temperance Union, and for twenty years was its president. In this, as in the other, her influence was felt in the broader work of the County Union.

The Visiting Nurse Association appealed not in vain to her; for six years she was its president.

The ministry of suffering was hers, and sorrows came to her also, but her Christian fortitude and hope never failed.

The great company that gathered for the last rites of respect witnessed to the esteem in which she was held, and will long remember hers as a useful, a helpful life.

‘She hath done what she could.’

‘Her children rise up and call her blessed.’
