This book is a memorial biography of the greatest woman philanthropist of her generation. Frances Willard's name will stand pre-eminent as the one who saw with a keen prophetic eye ahead of her time, who realized the dangers, who steered clear of t he rocks and shoals that beset any great change, and who furnished the women, not only of a great continent but the world over, with a just realization of their rightful position, and with that safeguarding gospel, "Womanliness first ----afterward w hat you will". The temperance cause was the open door through which she entered into her service for the world. The defense of woman, her uplift, her education for the widening way, was the task she set herself to accomplish. The time she spent i n England was a triumphal procession, & greetings awaited her in every city of importance throughout the whole of Great Britain & Ireland. The Synod Hall in Edinburgh, the historic temperance town of Preston, Dublin, & Glasgow, vast assemblies in t he Free Trade Hall in Manchester, packed audiences in Liverpool & Birmingham --all vied to do her honor.
