This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed.

The readers of our Magazine have frequently been reminded that Sister Mary Alphonsus Downing showed, when very young, a true vein of poetic talent in her contributions to the Nativn newspaper under her well-known signature of "Mary."
