Excerpt from Miss. Ellis's Mission
The church fairs were always liberally aided by her willing hands. Indeed, it is difficult, without seeming exaggeration, to express her passion of devotion to her church. It was literally her life. Outside her family, to which she was warml... y attached, everything centred for her there, and for many years one of her heaviest crosses was her inability to render the service she desired to her church and denomination.
The portrait prefacing this book was taken in 1871, when Miss Ellis was thirty-six years old, perhaps the saddest period in her life. Youth, health, fortune, hearing, dear friends, had gone one after another. The future looked dark in deed. She felt within herself capacities for which there seemed no earthly Opportunity. The face wears a sadder expression than that characterizing it in later life, when at last she had found her real work.'
