Memorable Women of the Puritan Times 1862
Volumes 1 and 2 of the original work. The Puritan times embrace the most interesting and instructive period in the annals of English history. Most of the eminent women commemorated in these volumes may be considered as historical characters. They may not have acted in any very conspicuous part in the public transactions of their time, or have given to it its mold and importance; but they stood closely connected by relationship or otherwise with the master spirits and prime actors. The incidents of their lives relate rather to the domestic, than to public events; for even when public history is touched upon, it is generally intermingled with or bearing upon domestic scenes.
