Overview

Excerpt from The Widow's Offering: An Authentic Narrative of the Parentage, Life, Trials and Travels of Mrs. Elizabeth Hill

This narrative, which was written solely for the gratification of some highly esteemed friends, who entreated me to give them some of the leading events of my life - has been laying for several years with the intention of not having it published during my life - but as I am now fast declining in the vale of years, and feel myself unable any longer to buffet the storms a cold, unfeeling world, I would humbly offer it to a generous and sympathizing public as my last resource.

I am perfectly aware that you will find imperfections throughout the whole, but as it was my first attempt at any thing of the kind, which I have performed without guide or compass, or even a book to assist me in my travels, I humbly trust that every allowance will be made, at least by those friends fur whom it was at first designed, if not by a prejudiced public; and that this little work may find a friendly acceptance for the benefit of the destitute widow, is the sincere prayer of the writer.
