(Shakespeare: "Troilus and Cressida.")
"'Still, still with Thee, when purple morning breaketh,
When the bird waketh and the shadows flee."
(Harriet Beechef Stowe)
When Hig was a little boy he drew a,map of his cosmogony of the world: Norristown, the Sea of Galilee with the
Jordan River, North Philadelphia Station, Fabyan's, Bretton Woods, and Camp Diamond. Just above Camp he drew "the
hill by which you go to Heaven." I showed this to his father and to the Speers and we all liked it and said
how true it was,--and then I put it in his "Baby Book" and it is there today.
In August, 1936, the map came true. No one ever went more directly from one place to another than my husband from
the hill of Camp Diamond to Heaven. It was the place he loved best, and the friends he loved were there: the Taylors,
the Corums, the Ristines, Mrs. Brister, Miss Thompson and Miss Klemm, the Hutchisons (including Judge Hutchison
of Kansas, and Rex and Marian Clements of the Bryn Mawr Church); the Judds were there from China (C. I. M.), and
above all, we had Emma Snyder, the best nurse that ever lived, (now working among lepers in Africa under the Sudan
Interior Mission). The illness was short, Dr. Twombley and Dr. Noyes from Colebrook were there and Dr. Beecher
came from Burlington, we had every kind of help, and we had hope until near the very end; there was no time to
send for Catherine from the South or Horace Junior from Europe--John and I shared this experience.
The service in the Assembly Hall combined Dr. Taylor for old days and China, Dr. Corum for the Church, Dr. Hutchison
for youth. The Littles and the Ramsays came, and the Philip E. Colemans from Lake Sunapee. (Mr. Sisco offered to
sing, but we connected him with the concerts there in other years.)
Drs. Taylor, Corum and Hutchison went, with Klemmy and Emmy, John and me, to Philadelphia; and returned with us
to the changed Camp--from which he had climbed the steep ascent to Heaven.
