tailed, and its difficulties, with all, a warm-hearted and generous support, financially.
Descending from Capt. Jonathan (4) Maltbie, who valiantly served the cause of right and freedom, during the Revolutionary War--she up- held the same standard in her daily life--always standing for high principles and justice.
She was an example and an inspiration to greater effort, greater achievement, to all those who knew her, and because they knew her-- loved her.
Just as 850 years previously, her ancestor, Reinfrid, "a valliant soldier in the Conqueror's Army" is recorded to us as:--"He lived beloved and respected" and when he died, "his little body" was brought to Hachness, where he was buried before the altar of St. Peter the Apostle," so, after eight centuries, Katharine, having lived beloved and respected--a valliant soldier in the army of Christ, the Conqueror, died and "her little body" was laid to rest.
In loving memory. Dorothy Maltby Verrill.

To all of these I wish to make an expression of profoundest grati- tude, for their great assistance and interest in the Maltbie work, both financially and for their encouragement, for their long years of faithful, sincere kinship in times of plenty or through adversity, and the uplifting which came from the hearts of these three lovely Christian women.
These words are written in loving gratitude. Dorothy Maltby Verrill.
