In searching through the darkened corridors of the past, it has been a source Of much gratification to the author to find in Narcissa Prentiss Whitman a character well intended to exemplify the higher and nobler qualities Of our race. It was her great privilege to be the first American woman to cross the continent and look upon the waters Of the Columbia River, and that fact alone should entitled her to distinction. But when, moreover, the records Of the past reveal in her the beau tiful personality we so much admire, and the womanly quali ties we would perpetuate, it would be strange indeed if her followers, actuated by her untimely death and the serene and courageous manner in which she faced it, failed to confer upon her, in love and in memory, the mystic crown Of martyrdom.
