Excerpt from A Happy Year, or Fifty-Two Letters to the Banner of Light
This little book is called for several reasons A Happy Year.
The author has always lived a very busy life since entering on womanhood, as a teacher for thirty-three years, and later as a lecturer and writer. The lecturing days are now ended, owing to the waning of physical vigor; and owing to impaired vision, her literary work during the past year has been limited tthe answering of letters, the preparation of these Weekly letters for the banner or light, and an occasional article for the progressive thinker.' This comparative rest and seclusion have been grateful indeed to one who has labored so long in the busy walks of life.
But this is not the only reason that this has been a happy year. There are two others, both weightier than the one just cited.
