of money, I lost friends! My fortune from
home was spend [sic] here in America, to restore
my husbands health. 10½ yrs I struggled - nursed
an epileptic husband, until my means were
exhausted - I had to leave Rev. Kline go to an
institution, kept by the church, as he is incu-

make a living. Having never been thrown
upon the world in such poverty - it was
