Excerpt from The Light of Other Days: Sketches of the Past, and Other Selections From the Writings

A character like that of Mrs. K. Is of difficult portraiture. To delineate its combination of valuable and rare qualities would require peculiar talent. Few minds could appreciate the piety, the acquisition, the sensibility of the gifted being who is now gone. The style of thought and feeling which enstamped her mind belonged peculiarly to that period, and it has, with the generation of her contemporaries, passed away. Mind is formed at present in a different mould from what it was in the last century. The modes of education and the usages of society have changed. Literature and sentiment flow in another channel.
