Excerpt from Frances E. Willard: A Memorial Volume
The sending forth of a Memorial Volume at the loving insistence of the General Officers of the National Woman's Christian Temperance Union is a sad and sacred privilege intrusted to me because for twenty-one years God gave me that which was my highest joy, the opportunity to share the most toilsome period of Frances E. Willard's sublime and heroic life. It is brought out thus early to meet an immediate demand and is published by the Woman's Temperance Publishing Association, the official Publishing House of the National Woman's Christian Temperance Union.
I could not have undertaken the work without the approval and sympathetic co-operation of Lady Henry Somerset, that loyal and great-hearted friend, who by the law of kinship among great souls was closely united to Miss Willard in endeavor, achievement and ideals. The generous assistance of two of Chicago's leading clergymen, Dr. Frank W. Gunsaulus and Dr. Newell Dwight Hillis, is also gratefully acknowledged, together with suggestions and contributions from many valued friends.
