Excerpt from Sherley: Book of Poems, Choice and Rare
Miss Pegram, who was born and reared on a little farm, Fairy Haven, which is her present home, near the village of Elkin, in Surry County, North Carolina. Her father and mother died when she was quite young, leaving two lit... tle sisters in her care, and while she had another sister and four brothers, they were away from home and thus all the responsibilities of the home and her younger sisters devolved upon her, and her life has been one of self-sacrifice and perfect devotion to those who are near and dear to her, and the sick and the poor ever find a true friend and helper in her. Having thus spent her life in the country, and deprived of a liberal education, yet she is just such a woman as God intended that woman should be - true, noble and good - always doing her duty and knowing but little of the luxuries and some times needing the very necessities of life, yet she has ever been hopeful that through the cloud God's sun would sometime cast its warmest rays upon her and those she loves, and believing that it is through His mercies that she has been permitted to write these poems as a means of support for herself and sisters, she sends them forth with the wish that they may be a source of enjoyment and real good to many others.
