This book also includes many anecdotes and reminiscences of Sara’ family including a section devoted to the slaves owned and later freed after the Civil War by her family. The book is dedicated by the author, Sara Gossett Crigler (1886-1966), to her mother Sallie Brown Gossett (1859-1942) and her aunt Mary Brown Mahon (1861-1948) who were both graduates of Williamston Female College in 1877 and 1879 respectively. The 170 page volume would be useful to anyone doing research on the education of women in South Carolina during the 19th century.
