portion of our lives is spent in anxious and useless
forebodings concerning the future – either our own
or those of our dear ones. Present joys, present blessing
slip by and we miss half their flavor, and
all for want of faith in Him who provides for
the tiniest insect in the sunbeam”. Phillips Brooks.

The Sec’y read most of the last chapter of
Chas. Dudley Warner’s “My Summer in a Garden”
which little book in merry guise, often has
both wit and wisdom charmingly mingled on

Pen-y-Bryn. 2-5-1914

Owing to the long illness, and death of
John C. Bentley, near and dear to all S.S., apparently

R. Shoemaker, Annie M. Chandlee, Rebecca T. Miller,

about 2 mtgs. well all attended, the subject of increasing
our roll to 25 names was discussed a
little, and a resolution to that effect moved
by Fanny B. Snowden, and seconded by M. G. T.
Moore, referred to the next session.

Estelle T. Moore presented a few proposed
changes in the constitution of our Co. Fed., to reduce
the representation somewhat, and also to condense reporting,
or rather make one general report, instead of so many
