“I will therefore that the younger women marry, bear children, guide the house, give none occasion to the adversary to speak reproachfully.”

1 Tim. 5:4

“The aged women… that they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, to be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.”

For Girls

Donkersley, Richard – Facts About Girls for Girls  1860  220 pp.

Richmond, Leigh – The Dairyman’s Daughter  n.d.  190 pp.  A chapter book.

This is one of the 19th century’s most well-read stories for girls.  Over 3 million copies sold before 1900.  This true story is told by her pastor, Leigh Richmond, about young Elizabeth Wallbridge, who came to be known as “The Dairyman’s Daughter.”

A child of a poor dairy farmer in England, Richmond met Elizabeth in 1798 upon his arrival as the new minister on the Isle of Wight.  He learned from her of a proud past in which she forsook all love of her family, but then of the sweet love of Christ which was formed in her and the shining testimony she became as a witness for Him with her holy life. Richmond regarded Elizabeth as “one of the best-versed persons in the Scriptures” whom he had ever met and considered meeting her one of the highest privileges of his life.
