Excerpt from Our Glorified, Poems and Passages of Consolation: Especially for Those Bereaved by the Loss of Children

Out of this labor for children grew a work still more peculiarly her own, the establishment of the Monday class in 1883. This is composed of boys and girls between the ages of ten and seventeen, who gather at certain seasons on Monday after noons, at the close of the school session, for relig ious instruction and guidance. The class was begun because Mrs. Foxcroft felt that as children left her department, they passed from heninfluence, and she could do little for them unless she could get them together to talk with them. She gave the invitation to the first meeting with hesitation. Thirty boys and girls responded to it, and she began the work of systematic instruction in Bible history and biography, and in moral and religious truth. Her earnestness, her tact, her varied resources, and most of all her loving manner, drew a constantly increasing number of young people about her. No denominational lines were recognized or thought of. Boys and girls from any church or from no church were welcomed. All that was asked was kind and reverent attention, and this was given to an extent which brought the keenest gratification to her heart.

From year to year the numbers grew, until the enrolment of actual present membership reached three hundred and fifty. Lessons in Bible chronol ogy and geography, the names of the books of the Bible, in order and by groups, the chief persons and events in each epoch of Bible history, the journeys of Paul, the map of Palestine, the manners and customs of the people in Bible lands and times, with talks upon Bible heroes, the boys and girls of the Bible, the parables, principles of conduct, and, above all and underlying all, the faith that is in Christ Jesus, these were her themes. Prayer, singing, and the repeating of passages of Scripture, filled out the hour. There was no attempt at mere entertainment, and it was a cause of unceasing sur prise and gratification to Mrs. Foxcroft that so manv boys and girls were not only willing, but eager, to attend the class. Three years ago, she succeeded in securing money to establish a Lending Library in connection with the class. This contains over three hundred volumes of the best neek-day books, fiction, biography, history, travels, and adventures, with a few simple volumes of science. In eleven weeks, in the spring of 1888, the distribution reached over 2200 volumes, and only two were lost or unac counted for.
