      MEMOIRS

      W. R. Kirk Journal, 1866

      She was born South Carolina I think.

      My mother! Thoughts of her always make me sad. She died when I was but thirteen months old. From what father and my brothers and sisters have told me, I realize she had every qualification of a mother save an education. I have often thought that she must have been in some respects superior to all other women, Is it wrong for me to say this? She had a large family of children, some of whom were self-willed and head strong - and yet I have heard that she was never known to manifest the least impatience towards us, and I have nay heard my dear father with tears in his eyes, for he used to tell me "of mother, that she never spoke and unkind word to him in her life." I said in some respects I have thought that she must have been superior to all other women. I have been mixing and mingling among all classes of men for eleven years, and have not found the man that could say as much for his wife or the wife that could say as much for the husband.

      I never new my father to utter a falshood (sic) nor even the semblance of falshood (sic). Therefore I believe he literally spoke the truth when he told me that Mother never spoke an unkind word to him. His tears verified it.

      But little did he think that. That short sentence made an indellible (sic) impression on my mind, and that I would record it in the future in honor of her precious memory to transcribe to generations unborn. I would not have that sentence blotted from my memory for all this world. [1]
