SILENT STRUGGLES.

by

MRS. ANN S. STEPHENS.

Author of "The Wife's Secret," "The Rejected Wife," "Mary Derwent," "Fashion and Famine," "The Heiress," "The Old Homestead," etc., etc.

A woman's heart, though delicate, is strong, Like virgin gold it takes the furnace heat. Giving to history and immortal song A glow of heroism pure and sweet.

Great men have sought the battle in their pride, Hewing a path to glory as they fell; But women, braver still, have grandly died In silent struggles fame may never tell.

Philadelphia: T. B. Peterson & Brothers, 306 Chestnut Street.

Entered according to Act of Congress, in the year 1865, by Mrs. Ann S. Stephens, In the Clerk's Office of the District Court of the United States, in and for the Southern District of New York.

DEDICATION.

TO MRS. GEORGE H. PENFIELD, OF HARTFORD, CONN.

DEAR LADY:

One of the sweetest privileges connected with the authorship of a book is, that it can be made the landmark of such love and kindly feeling as have united us from the day that we first met till now. Believe me, it shall not prove my fault if this dedication fails to link the future with the past, in one perfect and life long friendship.

ANN S. STEPHENS.

NEW YORK, APRIL 8, 1865.
