[Child (1802-1880) mentions proof sheets, possibly for her book Aspirations of the World, an anthology of selections from religious books around the world with an introduction by her, describes all of the activities which have prevented her from writing her friend earlier and visiting Medford, and mentions her struggle with weariness, "I try very hard to travel through the remainder of my pilgrimage with brave resignation; but the way is lonely, and my old feet are weary."]
