Excerpt from Dear Annie: A Brief Memorial of Anna Maria Drummond Walsh, Who Departed This Life January 31st, 1855, Aged 22
Communicant. How truly she thenceforward adorned her profession, they who saw most of her most readily acknowledge; and some of these there are who, though they have lived twice as many days as she, fondly emulate the Christian graces, which developed with her ripening years - and whose ambition it is to be followers of her, even as she was also of Christ - ever bearing in mind, in justice to her Heavenly Father, that BY the grace OF god she was what she was.
The love of study which adorned her maturer years was very early discoverable. She seemed never to have been the mere child. As soon as she could speak words, she framed sentences. A record of her visit to London, dictated by her as 2' a little girl of five years old, survives to indicate a preco city which her friends rather desired to repress than encourage. Poetry, the delight of her prime, when her mind was richly stored with its specimens, had early charms for her.
