AUTHOR OF “HITHERTO," “ PATIENCE STRONG'S OUTINGS," ETO.
“To do my duty in that state of Bo to which it shall please God to call mo."
Jllustrated by C. 6. Bush.
I BEGAN this story for young girls. It has grown, 18 they grow, to womanhood. It makes no artistic pretension. It is a simple record of something of the thought and life that lies between fourteen and twenty.
I dedicate it, as it is, to these young girls, who dream, and wish, and strive, and err; and find, perhaps, little help to interpret their own spirits to themselves. I believe and hope that there is nothing in it which shall hinder them in what is noblest and truest.
May there be something that shall lift them — though vy ever so little - up!
