Not illustrated. 1852 edition. Excerpt: she sees the dawning of a better day for the mother and sister and daughter in these dark mountains. It is a cheering fact that the principal mothers of the village, all the young men, and all the children of a suitable age, are learning to read the gospel. The fathers of the village, too, are determined not to be left altogether behind. They meet in the school-room every Saturday, and listen to the scholars while learning their Sabbath-school lessons.
