SOME TRIBUTES TO MOTHERHOOD. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 19 February 1910

SOME TRIBUTES TO MOTHERHOOD. Motherhood, as revealed in biogra phy, has ever a perennial charm. Often only a few letters tell the story, but the true, loving spirit has assert ed iteslf, and all life is richer. When Longfellow, at the age of twenty-one, for him a line from her was 'more efficacious than all the homilies preached in Lent,' is there not re vealed a blessed heart-relation we all delight to see? Max Muller, in speaking of his reli gious beliefs in- his 'Autobiography,' reveals his faith in his mother when he says that his 'practical religion' was what he learnt from her. 'That,' he declares, 'remained' unshaken in all storms, and in its extreme sim plicity and childishness answered all the purposes for which religion is meant.' It remains to add Thomas Carlyle's filial tribute: — 'She was a true, pious, brave, and noble mother to me; and it is now all over; and the past has all become pale and sad and sacred; and the all-devouring potency of death, what we call death, h...
