Miss Anne Whitney, The Charlesgate. Boston, Mass.

My dear Miss Whitney,

Your generous Christmas gift of $200 to this Home was received Christmas evening when we had a very delightful social home time together here with distribution of gifts. All hearts responded with joy and gratitude. I read aloud your dear letter, for which I thank you more than I can express. I well remember my one visit to you and Miss Manning, with our friend Miss Augusta Brown. I explained to the members of the family your allusion to Miss Manning and her mother. How true it is that "to live in hearts we leave behind, is not to die." Your kind and faithful remembrance of this cause is a great comfort and inspiration, an encouragement to keep sowing the seed even when we do not immediately see the fruition.

Ever yours gratefully and sincerely

Mary Howard Fowler, Ex. Sec.

Letter from Mary Howard Fowler, Worcester, Massachusetts, to Anne Whitney, Boston, Massachusetts, 1911 December 26
