Excerpt from Hallberger's Illustrated Magazine, 1876, Vol. 2 Cynthia's position in the family, therefore, seemed rather that of daughter than wife. She sat by her husband's side at meals; she spent her mornings in needlework, and her afternoons in serious reading, or occasionally in a ramble on the sea-shore or in the woods with Jim. She would have been better pleased to accompany her husband on his pastoral visits to distant homesteads and cottages, but Joshua told her gently that her presence would be out of place on such occasions. She taught in Mr. Haggard's Sunday-school, held in a roomy loft at the top of the chapel. She often went to read to the sick and aged among her husband's flock, delighted to be of some use in thig manner; but these occupa tions left a wide margin of her life to be filled somehow: and there were afternoon hours in which she sat with the Bible or Baxter open before her, and her thoughts wandering far from the text.
