Mrs. Williams was an inde fatigable worker . in her church " and was a pioneer in organizing the Woman's Missionary Society. She had been married for forty six years and had been a model woman in the domestic . and so cial circles. About eighteen months ago she suffered a stroke of paralysis, from which she par tially and slowly recovered, until she hoped to visit Chapel Hill again. uDis aliter visum."
