Women worth Emulating.

 

BY

CLARA L. BALFOUR.

 

"Oh, let me emulate the good and wise;
Gaze on their course, and mark their way,
Until my mind and soul, like theirs, may rise—
Bathed in the light of Heavenly day!"

Preface.

Women worth Emulating - Preface rule.png

Emulation is the spirit most desirable to arouse in the young. What of personal progress and relative usefulness has been effected by others, is always a valuable and inspiriting study. That which we are constrained to approve and admire we are led to emulate, even where imitation may not be possible. The sterling qualities which made a character excellent, still more than the mental powers which made it remarkable, convey lessons for instruction and encouragement that all can apply.

It is with this purpose that the following varied selections of womanly worth and wisdom are presented to the young of their own sex, in the hope that studious habits, intellectual pursuits, domestic industry, and sound religious principles, may be promoted and confirmed by such examples.

CLARA LUCAS BALFOUR.

Croydon, 1877.
