Excerpt from Biography of Ann Howell Burt

Many years ago, when the gospel was first introduced to the world, there lived in far off beautiful Wales, at a place called Aberdare, Glamorganshire, a well-to-do family by the name of Howell. Mr. Howell kept a dry goods store, and he was also a preacher in the Baptist church. They had several children - five or six boys, and a girl named Ann.

This little girl was a pretty, vivacious little thing, full of life, and quite impressed with the fact that she was Mr. Howell's daughter, as children brought up in comparative luxury are apt to feel.

When she was ten years old Ann was sent to a boarding school at Swansea to be initiated into the mysteries of all that a well brought up young lady should know. But the methods employed were rather severe and Ann did not fancy the idea of being straight-jacketed and dieted in order to become delicate and refined looking; besides, it affected her health very much, and being of an independent spirit she objected. Her father had to be sent for and Ann joyfully returned with him to her home and her loving mother.

One day, while she and her brother were roaming in the field, they attempted to cross a stream on a plank some workmen had left. There was a bridge a little higher up stream, which would have been a great deal more convenient, but, on the lookout, as children generally are, for something whereby they might get hurt, they spied this place with delight and attempted to walk across it, wiggling and giggling so as to make it all the more exciting, and of course they both fell in; first the boy and next Ann, who very heroically tried to save her brother.
