WORDS OF WISDOM
IN MOTHER'S WILL
Short Document Worthy of
Place in Literature.
Worth more than all her personal
belongings was the compact of love,
piety, faith and common sense which
a New Tork woman left her family.
Like all the great things of life, the'
message is simple, and valuable enough
as an Item of Interest to the public at
■ large to find space In the newspapers.
The letter was written by Mrs. Lydla
Harding Hammond, widow of the Rev.
John Dennis Hammond, a Methodist
minister, to be read by the children
after her death. It runs as follows:
,"Dear Children —I've Just made my
will, and this Is to tell you what I want
done with my personal belongings.
Don't keep anything Just because it
was mine; they are Just things, and
worn and shabby at that; love doesn't
need such things for remembrance.
"Most of my books are old and many
of them I haven't looked Into for years.
I have loved and kept them because
they have enlarged my life. Henry is
to have them and my Bible, typewriter
and Verdun vase.
"I'won't be separated from any of
you, dear children. I'll Just be closer
to God and will understand better the
ways In which prayers and faith can
open way# through which Gbd can help
you and ! 111 be able at ldast to love
you with all my heart and without any
thing In that love that will make you
feel as if I wanted to control you or
"Bury my body .as cheaply as you
can and forget It. Don't wear mourn
ing, unless, of course, 'Lynx' wants to.
And think of me as alive, alive beyond
your farthest thought, and near, and
loving you, and well at last, far as the
winds of heaven and learning more and
more the things I want to know and
growing more toward what God wants
me to become.
"I think, maybe, John will have our
home ready when I come and we'll
have a real home at last '
"Love one another. Hold fast to that
whether you understand one another
or not, and remember nothing really
matters "except being kind to one an
other and to all the world as far as
you can reach.
"Tour Lovlngest Mother."
Such faith as this Methodist minis
ter's wife displays, says the Boston
Globe, "is the best evidence of those
things this woman believed. She Uvpd
them and her faith revealed through
her will shines like a star 1 . -Here In
very truth Is the victory that overcom

now in the midst of time." Says the
New York Sun:"
"We prefer to accept this letter as
more nearly revealing the spirit which
today generally animates and Inspires

who see In occasional records of do
mestic discord, parental Inattention
and filial neglect true Indexes of the

found In countless households from the
Atlantic to the Pacific, from the Lakes
to the Gulf. The power to set forth

letter a unique and universal valae."—
