Nov. 13, 1m. Proud ones refused the least burden to lift; ??????Whose purest Transcript we A Patch-Work SCREEN FOR THE LADIES. LEAF III. Nell. O Miss Cob, you must see his sketches. The next few months were marked by no very especial events; only the usual ups and downs, anxieties, disappointments, encouragements, of Missionary work. Missionaries came and went as usual; and partings took place, some of which tried her much. Miss Eva Warren, who had spent several weeks with her in 1889, came in November to be a permanent inmate of 鈥楽unshine鈥? no small pleasure to Miss Tucker.
