Excerpt from The Life of Mother Mary Baptist Russell: Sister of Mercy

This allusion to her brother affords an excuse for inserting here a belated extract from one 0 Mother Baptist's letters. After speaking of a cousin of the same name who had just died, she goes on Our own dear Charles seems to prosper in every way. I only hope God is not allowing more success than is good for his eternal interests. His Woes to the Rich' are frightful. As charity is one of the chief means of turning riches to good account for here after, I must [then she suggests certain charitable works] I must also find out if he has sent a piano I asked him to send to our poor Sisters in a very poor place in England. This last sentence speaks well for both brother and sister. It is harder to ask another to do a charitable deed of that sort than it would be to do it oneself if it were in one's power.

This sister and brother, who have many points of resemblance in character, died in the same month of August, two years apart. It was Lord Russell of Killowen who, to my surprise, suggested that our sister's life ought to be written. This attempt at fulfilment of his wish is now dedicated affectionately to his memory. May they both rest in peace.
