Excerpt from Judith's Garden
From my very soul I dislike Miss Singleton. You know yourself, there are people one can't like. She was of that sort, - a pious, fussy woman, exerting herself dreadfully hard to get to heaven. Of late she had taken to foreign missions. Now she had called to exhort me to join the missionary society.
Had I been myself, I should have concocted a polite excuse - expressed a mock sorrow, and gently refused her; but as it was, I took an unholy delight in replying to that woman. I told her I did not intend to join any society.
She inquired, sadly, if I did not feel concerned in the welfare Of my antipode brother.
