Andrews Spencer, who rendered such helpful assistance and gave herself to our cause, as it were. Faithful and true, friends in very deed have both these been from that day to this. Belva A. Lockwood, staunch and true as steel, Lillie Devereaux Blake and dear Marilla Ricker, though we did not see her this time. But there are otters, too, whose acquaintance we have made since, no less true and truly great, always to be depended upon. Clara B. Colby, a genuine friend; Hannah G. Solomon and Dr. Ella L. Gilchrist, never to be forgotten when we make up our jewels among women; and we have dozens more Ida M. Weaver, Emma S. Olds, Sadie American, Dell P.Glazier, Frances Burns and these are only a few of the bright galaxy that shine out for the enlightenment of the world. Then beside business sessions and public meetings and "pioneer celebrations" and the "new woman" and the "new man," there were grand receptions tendered in elegant homes, music, art and dainty refreshments, of which more may be said hereafter. The reception at the White House which Mrs. Roosevelt had tendered to the Council was cancelled because of the illness of her son; but just before we left Washington we had the opportunity of attending the reception given to the Mothers' Congress. We also had the privilege, through the of Senator Kearns, a few of us, of going through the White House conservatory. Mrs. George Sutherland gave a luncheon at the "New Willard" to the Utah delegation, a most sumptuous affair, and a number of us dined twice with Senator Kearns at the "Raleigh." Indeed we have crowded as ' much as possible into the few weeks at the Capital, and most of us have been on duty the greater part of the time. L. D. S. meetings have been held in Baltimore and Philadelphia at which some of our sisters were among the speakers, and also here in New York City. Last evening, Tuesday, March 4th, at tLe residence of Mrs. Laine, there was a large gathering of Utah people at what is termed here a Cottage meeting. There were so many from Salt Lake City present.one might fancy in looking over the congregation that Salt Lake had come to Gotham. There was an excellent spirit and feeling manifest and strong testimonies of the Gospel were borne by the sisters and Elders from Utah and by some of the new converts. We can truly say, notwithstanding the opposition, that : : "Z ion prospers, all is well." Mrs. Susan Cabot Richardson has just left an estate of $200,000 to Radcliff College. Miss Helen M. Gould, an advocate of equal suffrage, has given $6,000 to create a third Helen Day Gould scholarship of $10,000 at Wellesley College, in memory of her mother, and has added $3,000 to raise the two existing Helen Day Gould scholarships from $7,000 to $10,000.
