I was so very surprised and excited to see my great Aunt Annie Webster's book in remembrance of her dear sister Ellen, as one of your chosen online digital reads. She would feel very honoured, I'm certain, to see it here for the world to know of her younger sister's great accomplishment's and personal satisfaction in preaching the word of the Lord to anyone willing to listen during the short time she ministered until her death at nineteen years of age.
Several members of my family have been fortunte enough to acquire a copy of it, mine from a bookstore in London, England. however, for those who have not been so lucky.... they'll now have this to read and treasure.
Thank you for including this book.
