Excerpt from Memorial Sketch of Elizabeth Emerson Atwater: Written for Her Friends
Mother left us before the stage passengers had breakfasted, and Abba and myself had to wait there all alone until they were to start, which was half an hour I suppose that time to you, Janette, seems very short, but to us, I assure you, it seemed a long, long time. Can you, my dearest Janette, imagine my feelings when the carriage came to the door? You may conceive in some measure that they cannot be described. I thought there never was'so cruel a woman as mother.
