Text

prophecy has been!
Woman was the ^home drudge.
Now she is the teacher.
Let her not forfeit it
by being the arrogant-
the “Equal with Men.”
She does not forfeit it
by being the help “meet.”

Now, will you let me
try to thank you,
tho’ words cannot
express my thankfulness,
for all your kind thoughts,
for your beautiful Books
