Abstract

THE LIFE OF MARY MEHITABLE CHASE By Robert von Behr* "Do not wonder that I bow in grief," said the old man, "for the light of my old age is set." The elm branches swayed, and the nearby brook seemed to murmur in sympathy, as he and his guest made their way from the grave. A few months earlier, he had seen his daughter buried there, at the age of thirty-one, after a struggle with tuberculosis. Mary Chase seldom enjoyed good health, although her childhood in the Chatham hills in New York State had been vigorous. Her father taught her early to appre- ciate and understand Nature. On the morning of her death, she said to him, "Father, when I was a little, fragile child, thee took me in thy arms and carried me out into the fields, and told me to look around and see what a good world God had made for little children; and after that, I think I was not as before." Her mother, gifted with delicate tastes and appreciations, though never equipped with the "advantage" of culture, encouraged her interest in Nature. "Sweet Mother," Mary wrote, "how precious to her were the commonest
