THE Queen of a small
Those who are accustomed to see rulers of greater lands can little
understand what it means.
It means work and anxiety and hope, and great toiling for small
results. But the field is large, and, if the heart be willing, great
is the work.
When young I thought it all work, uphill work; but the passing years
brought another knowledge, a blessed knowledge, and now I know.
This is a small country, a new country, but it is a country I love.
I want others to love it also; therefore listen to a few words about
it. Let me paint a few pictures, draw a few sketches as I have seen
them, first with my eyes, then with my heart.
