Dear girls, don’t be so often wishing
you were grown up that you will neglect
your girlhood. In the rush and hurry
of these fast times there is danger that
rou will reach and strain after “young
adyhood’’ too much. Be girls awhile
yet—tender, joyous, loving, obedient,
industrious. V^omanhood with its priv
ileges and power, its burdens and its
trials, will come soon enough. On this
point one has said: “Wait patiently,
my children, through the whole limit of
your girlhood. Go not after woman
hood; let it come to you. Keep out of
public view. Cultivate refinement and
modesty. The cares and responsibilities
of life will come soon enough. When
they come, you will meet them, I trust,
as true women should. But, oh, be not
so unwise as to throw away your girl
hood. Rob not yourself of this beauti
ful season which, wisely spent, will
brighten all your future life.’’
