    Dear Little Marchioness: The Story of a Child’s Faith and Love
    Illustrated by W.L. Taylor
    Introduction by Bishop Gailor
    New York: Thomas Y. Crowell & Company, 1895

    Good. Cream cloth with brown ink, illustrated cover. Cloth is a bit grubby, small closed tear to tissue guard visible in last photo, pages are clean and unmarked, binding sound. Sweet handwriting in a neat hand on the front free endpaper dated 1903.

    From the preface: “This simple story was written by one who ministered in person to the sick and dying during the epidemic of yellow fever in the city of Memphis in 1878.

    It is the story of a child’s faith and love: and it will appeal to those who, in passing through dark waters, have found their help and blessing in the unquestioning trust of childhood.

    For all of us, men and women, the experience of suffering is the opportunity of faith; and the wise of this world are still returning, and shall return, to find the star of their peace standing over the place where the Young Child is.”
