DUTCH ANNA. (Continued). [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra and Yea Standard, Gobur, Thornton and Acheron Express — 4 August 1877

. DUTCH ANNA. (Continued). A casual circumstance, which led to my becoming obliged to Anna, at length enabled me to overcome the suspicion and dislike with which our neighbor was segarded. Our acquaintance speedily ripened into friendship; fot with thie reaction natural to the generous, I felt as though I could never sufficiently compensate for my former injustice towards her. Often in an evening I would put on my bonnet, and, biking my work with me, go to spend a leisure hour with Dutch Anna; and on these occasions she generally entertained me with descriptions of her own country, and of the manners and customs of its inhabitants; or with striking anecdotes and incidents which had co.me under her own personal observation; never failing to draw some useful moral or illustrate, some important truth from what she related. She could read well, and write a little-rare accomplishments in those days for one to her situation in life. Her powers of observation were ex tremely acute, and her...

DUTCH ANNA. (Continued). [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra and Yea Standard, Gobur, Thornton and Acheron Express — 11 August 1877

DUTCH ANNA. (Continued. Anna, as I have before said, was remarkable for her fearlessness; so she thanked the gentleman for his proposal, saying " that she had not the least fear of spirits, good or bud; that tile former, if they were ever visible to mortal eyes, could be but messengers of mercy; and for the latter, she could not conceive that a Being infinite in goodness would ever permit them to revisit this earth for: the sole purpose of terrifying and tormenting innocent individuals like herself; that she far more dreaded evil men than evil spirits; and that us, from the estimation in which the place was held, she should feel herself secure from them, she would thankfully accept his offer." As soon. therefore, as the necessary preparations were made, and Anna had partaken of the good sub. stantiul fare set before her, she begged to lie allowed to retire to rest, as she was fatigued with her day's journey and wished to set out again early the next morning.
