dest daughter, and the marriage of Maud, the house-mate and comrade. During the winter of 1885-86 she made her headquarters in New York. Lecture engagements, conferences, and sermons took her hither and thither, and much of the time that should have been precious was passed in trains and boats. In the last days of February, Julia was stricken with rheumatic fever, which soon developed into typhoid. The weather was direful: bitter cold and furious wind. Our mother went at once to South Boston, where arriving, found my dear child seriously but not dangerously ill. Her joy at my coming was very pathetic. On the 28th she writes:-- I cannot be sure whether it was on this day that she said to me: Mamma, don't you remember the dream you had when Flossy and I were little children, and you were in Europe? You dreamed that you saw us in a boat and that the tide was carrying us away from you. Now the dream has come true, and the tide is bearing me away from you. This saying wa

adily, with a frank, honest face, and in a genial, offhand manner. A good specimen of his sort, not fine-brained, nor over-brained, but believing in religion and glad to devote his life to it. The Bishop has blue eyes and a shaggy head of grizzled hair. After Tacoma came hospitable Seattle ; where she lectured and attended a meeting of the Seattle Emerson Club; then to Olympia, by a small Sound steamer. A queer old bachelor on board, hearing me say that I should like to live in Washington Territory, said he would give me a handsome house and lot if I would live in Olympia, at which several Olympians present laughed. She left Olympia by train, en route for Portland. The conductor, Brown by name, saw the name on her valise, and claimed acquaintance, remembering her when she lived in Boylston Place. Soon after, passing a lovely little mill-stream, with a few houses near it, by name Tumwater, she consulted him as to the value of land there, with the result that she bought severa

gure; these visions are accurately described, each detail dwelt on with loving care. In the Reminiscences she tells of Julia's consecrated life, of her devotion to her father, and to the blind pupils; describes, too, her pleasure in speaking at te alike the crudeness of scepticism and the fierceness of intolerance. In the Reminiscences we find also the record of Julia's parting injunction to her husband: Be kind to the little blind children, for they are papa's children. These partint, we grayhaired children leaned on her, clung to her, as in the days when we were children indeed. A few years before Julia's death, our mother wrote to Mrs. Cheney, who had lost her only daughter: This combat of the soul with deadly sorrow is aa strange feeling that I could keep her alive by some effort of my will. I seemed to contend with God, saying, I gave up Julia, I can't give up Flossy — she has children. . . . December 28. Most of the day with dear Flossy, who seems a little b

lt the wrench. God knows whether she will ever be in my house again, as my partner in care and responsibility.. . After an A. A.W. conference in Boston, and a Woman's Council in Washington, she took the road. Her first stop was at Chicago. Here she was very busy and not quite well. Divided the day between Maud and some necessary business. At 3.15 P. M. the dreadful wrench took place. Maud was very brave, but I know that she felt it as I did .... To Maud Merchants' Hotel, St. Paul, Minnesota, April 10. So far, so good, my dear sweet child. I got me off as well as possible, though we had many complications and delays as to the ticket. My section was very comfortable. I had supper in the dining-car, and slept well, no theatre-troupe nor D. T. being aboard. I have now got my ticket all straight to 'Frisco, and won't I frisk oh when I get there! The next stop was at Spokane Falls. Here she had a bronchial attack; very hoarse and sore in my throat and chest. Went

g an industrial circle in each State; a woman's industrial convention hereafter; and attending a Suffrage Convention at Providence. Spoke of the divine right, not of kings or people, but of righteousness. Spoke of Ouida's article in the North A, Uncle Sam's Saint Esprit, and did my best, as did all the others. The next day she speaks at a suffrage meeting in Providence, and makes this comment:-- Woman suffrage represents individual right, integral humanity, ideal justice. I spoke ofma in which this gracious prophecy would be realized. In a good talk with Miss Eddy, Miss Sarah J. Eddy, then of Providence, a granddaughter of Francis Jackson. she devises a correspondence and circular to obtain information concerning art clubs throughout the country. I am to draft the circular. She makes an address at the Unitarian Club in Providence. The keynote to this was given me yesterday, by the sight of the people who thronged the popular churches, attracted, in a great me

her. A few dried and withered old women, like myself, were thrown in, an occasional smoky gent, and the gruel thick and slab, was what is called Human Nature! This is the spleeny vein, and I indulge it to make you laugh, but really, my journey was as comfortable as heat and speed would allow. Imagine my feelings on learning that there was no dining or buffet car! Do not grieve about this, the biscuits and bananas which you put up carried me quite a way. We got a tolerable breakfast at Cleveland, and a bad dinner at Buffalo, but dry your eyes, the strawberry shortcake was uncommonly good. And think how good it is that I have got through with it all and can now rest good and handsome. The summer entries in the Journal are varied and picturesque. My cow, of which I was fond, was found dead this morning. ... My neighbor Almy was very kind. ... I feel this a good deal, but complaining will not help matters. Mr. Bancroft [George], historian, brought Dr. Hedge to call after din

d singing in one of the parlors, and went in quest of it. In the great parlor of the hotel where hops take place, we found an assemblage of men and women, mostly young, singing Gospel hymns, with an accompaniment of grand piano. The Bishop of New Zealand stood in the middle of the apartment singing with gusto. Presently he took his place at the instrument, his wife joining him as if she thought his situation dangerous for a lone hand. A little later, some one, who appeared to act as master of ceremonies, asked me to come over and be introduced to the Bishop, to which I consented. His first question was: Are you going to New Zealand immediately? He is a Londoner. Ah, come; with all your States, you can show nothing like London. Being asked for a brief address, he spoke very readily, with a frank, honest face, and in a genial, offhand manner. A good specimen of his sort, not fine-brained, nor over-brained, but believing in religion and glad to devote his life to it. The Bishop

The Spokane of to-day may smile at the small things of yesterday; yet our mother always spoke with pleasure of her cordial reception there. Walla Walla, Walula, Paser. In the last-named place she found a tavern with many claimants for beds.

I was cramped and slept miserably. She was very quiet and amiable. At Tacoma again (on the way whither she felt as if her life hung by a thread while crossing the Notch), there was but one room for the two ladies, but they occupied it very peacefully. After church at Tacoma we heard singing in one of the parlors, and went in quest of it.

up this house. Had to work tight every minute. ... This Western lecture trip was like many others, yet it had its own peculiar pleasures and mishaps. October 12. Dunkirk, lecture.... No one must know that I got off at the wrong station — Perrysburg, a forlorn hamlet. No train that would bring me to Dunkirk before 6.30 P. M. Ought to have arrived at 1.30. Went to the hotel, persuaded the landlord to lend his buggy and a kindly old fellow to harness his horses to it, and drove twenty mileget in? Take it slow and learn to pedal, said my old driver. Presently he said, I guess you ain't so old as I be. I replied, I am pretty well on toward seventy. Well, I am five years beyond, said he. He drives an accommodation wagon between Perrysburg and Versailles, a small town where a man once wanted to set up a mill, and to buy land and water power, and they would n't sell either. Whereupon he went to Tonawanda and made the place. Guess they'd have done better to gin him the land and w

one of our old church-members, who told me, with eyes full of tears, that our dear James Freeman Clarke is no more. This was like an ice-bolt; I could not realize it at first. A very tender history Did in your passing fall. Years of sweet converse, of following and dependence, end with this event. So we come to the last day at the ranch, the parting with the dear sister; the departure for San Francisco, laden with roses and good wishes. On the way eastward she stopped at Salt Lake City, and went to the Mormon Tabernacle; an enormous building with a roof like the back of a turtle; many tourists present. The Mormons mostly an ill-looking and ill-smelling crowd. Bishop Whitney, a young man, preached a cosmopolite sermon, quoting Milton and Emerson. He spoke of the Christian Church with patronizing indulgence; insisted upon the doctrine of immediate and personal revelation, and censured the Mormons for sometimes considering their families before their church.
